Where'd the Sea Go?

I have no idea where this photo was taken. It appears to be the wreck of a large ship sitting in a desert. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm pretty sure it's the Aral Sea in Russia. That's the sea that has lost so much of its water. I've seen several similar pictures of ships in the desert before like that one.

"The major ecological problem is that diversion of the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers for irrigation has shrunk the Aral Sea dramatically; the Aral Sea has been drying up for about 50 years."
