    With my eyes I couldn't see the fine line which is visible in the
    photos. The photos have been made with a 6x zoom. The original
    question was what type of atmospheric effect one would observe here.
    Some of the pictures give the allusion of a blank strip at the horizon
    which occurs with a strong inversion over the sea surface. The last
    pictures however show that some boats enter the strip, and that for
    this reason it can't be blind. Concluding from this, it looks very
    likely that in this case the strip reflects 'only' the same colour as
    the one of the sky.

    The coordinates are also those from my still "temporary" domicile at:
    40.90174N 29.1595E. The height I can only guess: around 20m a.s.l.
