    Oh yes, I like this a lot Peter. I see what you mean about the steep slope. Love the color of the water in the pools.

  • Thanks Carl. There is lots more to this than this image shows. It’s a stunning place.

    By the way, I’ll be running an HDR contest on the Nikon D90 group for July.

  • Thanks for letting me know, I’ll have to start thinking about which image to enter!

    Brilliant, Peter! Seems like the HDR has really brightened the shadows. Nice shooting. AMR

  • It sure did AMR and thanks for the comment.

    I just love you showing me parts of the worls I will never see or even heared about. What wonderful pools. Love the aqua colour against the sand stone.Beautifully taken.

  • Thanks karen. Turkey is very easy for you to get to from the UK and cheap too. Some of the coastal towns seem more like English villages with all the English tourists.
