My Turkey Travel Pictures
Aegean Coast of Turkey
This area of Turkey stretches from the resort of Marmaris and around the coastline to the Northern Aegean region near Istanbul. The area includes the Bodrum, Izmir, Datca and Kusadasi regions. My travels in this area are far from over as there is still so much more to see.
Beaches of Turkey
I am not a beach lover, instead preferring to explore historical sites however no matter where I go, if it is a coastal resort, I will check out the beaches. To date, my favourite beach in Turkey is Olu Deniz on the Mediterranean coast.
Beypazari : Near the capital of Turkey, Ankara
This area is very much about nature and the great outdoors but I also did find a lot of culture in Beypazari. The old town centre consists of traditional Ottoman houses while surrounding the area is 33 small villages.
Black and white photographs from all around Turkey
Since I first started this blog, I have realised that photography plays a major part in showing people the country of Turkey. I do not consider myself an expert. No, far from it but I enjoy learning about different techniques and presentation methods including black and white photography.
There are many small resorts as well as a large town centre on the Bodrum Peninsula. To date, I have only explored a small area of it but that is set to change as I will focus on Bodrum in 2013.
Cappadocia region including Kayseri
I don’t normally return to the same place twice, however I have done with Cappadocia. It never fails to surprise and I am sure I will return for a third time.
Famous Buildings in Turkey
I love historical sites and museums in Turkey. A lot of the museums are set in famous buildings such as the Topkapi palace in Istanbul and the house of Ataturk in Trabzon
Flora and Fauna of Turkey
The flora and fauna of Turkey is extensive and beautiful. By photographing it, I also hope to improve my photography skills. Pictures below have been taken from around Turkey
Food and Drink
Turkish food and drink is varied, colourful and tasty. There are many traditional dishes that are worth trying while you are in the country. I love going from region to region and tasting the local food. The culinary delights of Turkey never fail to surprise me.
HDR photographs of Turkey
One photography technique that I am experimenting with is HDR which is High Definition photography. Still not able to gain results as easily as I would like so this is a work in progress.
Historical ruins in Turkey
My passion is historical sites and there is an abundance of them in Turkey, especially on the Mediterranean coast and south-east Turkey. There is still so many more for me to see and I look forward to it.
I have been to Istanbul three times and yet only discovered a small amount of the city. I think it will take me a long time to fully understand and see everything that Istanbul has to offer.
Landscape photos of Turkey
After reading an article on how to improve my photos, I learned that landscape photography is the best way to do it. These photos are taken from all around the country and I will add to it as and when I manage to get that perfect picture.
Mediterranean coast of Turkey
I completed a solo tour of the Mediterranean coast stretching from Antalya to Fethiye. It took me a month and during that time, I fell in love with this stretch of coastline. If you are thinking of visiting the Med coast, you will not be disappointed.
Northeast region of Turkey
My travels of the Northeast region took me from Trabzon and around the borderline to the eastern city of Kars. This area of Turkey completely took me by surprise with its green hills, friendly locals and traditional values. I would go back in a heartbeat.
People of Turkey
I meet many people on my travels from locals to travel agents to other holiday makers. Meeting the locals is my favourite experience because it helps me to learn about the culture and traditions of my adopted country.
Southeast of Turkey
My travels in the south-east have so far took me to the provinces of Gaziantep, Urfa and Mardin. This region is culturally rich with a mixture of Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish influences.
