These are saltpans, and this lake is Tuz Golu ("Tuz Gölü" in Turkish orthography), which simply means Salt Lake. The lake completely dries up in summer, and even in winter, water is no more than 2 feet deep throughout.

Here are the pictures at the website of the company that operates the saltpans:
