Turkey: where east meets west.

I have created this thread in order to share some of my self-made images of Turkey.

I have been to Turkey several times - mainly to the regions surrounding Bodrum, on the Turkish Aegean coast, and to the regions surrounding Kalkan, on the Turkish 'Lycian' - Mediterranean coast.

I have found it a fantastic place to visit - in large part, because the people of Turkey are so hospitable.

My pictures are, obviously, taken from an outsider's perspective - but I hope that they still capture some of the spirit and essence of these two regions of Turkey.

There are a lot of pictures of boats - because Turkey is such a fantastic place for boats and boat trips.

I have yet to visit Istanbul - but intend to. When I do, I will update the thread accordingly.

The village of Kalekoy.

I had to start of with images of Turkish rugs - because so much of the colour and texture of Turkey derives from them.

The remains of the sunken Lycian city of Kekova lie beneath the water.

There are many archaeological sites of ruined Lycian cities.

The next set of images are of the Bodrum peninsula in Mugla province.

Bodrum is home to the ancient remains of Halicarnassus, and to the 15C Templar castle of St Peter.
