Thank you for your appreciation Goady. Then, you're wellcome You'llalso appreciate the hospitality of the peopleas well as the astonishing richness of the archeological sites and artefacts which are 3000-4000 years old,fascinatinglandscape and sunny but non-suffocating climate, all of which made up my first hand experience during my travel there.

Bahadir,

The scenery is superb. Good shot under very difficult lighting with deep shadows and brilliant light.

I hope the river is a tame one since I would be fearful of flash floods.

Aloha

Thank you for your appreciation, Selvin. I think fooling the camera, setting the metering somewhereevenat the bordersof the framecould be the only possible way toease the difficult lighting which you pointed out very accurately.

BTW, you'll find the water in which I also swam, quite fitting to customary tolerant mannerof Anatolia ,reasonably tame (exceptfor thetimes in winter or early spring!)

hello bahadir this is another nice shot of yours, you have made a difficult shot look easy. You can imaging the water running down there when it is in flood,thats if it does flood ? where do you keep finding these great places ?.

Thank you, Alex. As a matter of fact, the land where I live, Anatolia, is highly generous with such scenes for the ones who are not simply lazy to shoot them My friends here in this web-site are a considerable incentive for me (who otherwise would tend to be lazy, too !)

About the flooding water: They say, in winter, at times, it would jump over the bridge which is about 10 feet above the present level of water!

Hercules, thanks for your appreciation. You can walk miles through this valleywatching thevarying view and occasionally some signs dating back to the times of Hittites as you turn each corner.

That's a very appealing shot, bahadir. It's interesting how the rock wall on the left rises almost vertically from the water. An excellent composition, as usual.
