AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 24 – BABADAG MOUNTAIN

Driving or walking along the Fethiye peninsular provides you with plenty of opportunities for panoramic views of the area. Some look out points even have the metal binoculars which you can put a lira in and get a better view of everything. I took this photo while we were parked up somewhere along the peninsular, […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 20 – SEEING DOUBLE?

Mountains Babadağ and Mendos form a major part of the scenery around Fethiye, and has featured a few times in this photo series, but today’s photos show them as you’ve probably never seen them before! When I was living in Turkey the first time, I had a beautiful view of the mountains from my kitchen window, […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 19 – A FETHIYE PENINSULAR SUNSET

Another sunset photo for today – but from a different viewpoint to the others! This was taken in February last year along the Fethiye peninsular. We had driven around and parked up on the cliff edge, climbed down a few rocks and sat waiting for the sun to go down. I have to say, I […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 17 – SNOWCAPPED MOUNTAINS

Although most people know Turkey for its almost-guaranteed sunshine for 6 months of the year, it’s not always hot…in winter it gets cold…VERY cold. Generally the coldest month in Fethiye is February, in my experience. I remember one winter it was around -2 degrees, with icy puddles outside. This photo was taken in January last […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 16 – Lake Köyceğiz

Whilst on a trip to Dalyan, we got on a boat and were taken for a short ride down Lake Köyceğiz, to one of the mud bath & sulphuric hot spring centres along the bank. It was good fun, but a little odd, swimming chest deep in mud and rubbing it all over yourself, then […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 11 – RED ISLAND

Yesterday’s photo focused on the sun setting behind Red Island/ Kızıl Ada. Today’s photo features the same island in daylight! It was taken in October 7 years ago from a boat trip- it hasn’t changed much! I love how calm the water is, no waves just ripples, a few autumnal clouds and the partial reflection […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 9 – TURQUOISE OLUDENIZ

I couldn’t chose between these two photos – so today I’m using both. This is the stunning view from the start of the Lycian Way, a 540km walking trail between Ölüdeniz and Antalya. Quite controversially, I’ve never been a real fan of Ölüdeniz, I have always thought it looks absolutely beautiful from above in people’s paragliding photos, […]
