Below the town of Gerger, its river, the Gerger Çayı, joins the Euphrates from the west ( not the small trickle in the foreground ! ).
This morning view at the confluence is of the main river upstream to the north-east.
... This area has been flooded by the waters of the lake formed behind the Atatürk Dam.
