This is a view of the river Orontes in Hamah-Syria; at left one of 17 norias, dating back to the Byzantine times. Fed by the Orontes river, they are up to 20 metres (66 ft) in diameter. The largest norias are the al-Mamunye (1453) and the al-Muhammediye (14th century). Originally they were used to route water into aqueducts, which led into the town and the neighbouring agricultural areas.
Bu kare Suriyenin Hama kentinden geçen Asi Nehr'in bir görüntüsü. Sol tarafta da Orontes (Asi) nehir üzerinde yer alan 17 tane su dolabından birini görüyorsunuz.
Bu dolapların çapları 20 mye kadar olanları var. En büyükleri El-Mamunye (1453) ve El-Muhammediye (14.yüzyıl). Yapılma amaçları, şehrin içinden geçen Asi nehrinin sularını, su kemerleri aracılığı ile, şehir dışındaki tarlalara aktarmak.

A nicely lit composition of this calm and peaceful river. I like the long deep perspective and the lovely reflections to be seen in the still almost glassy waters. Colours are attractive and natural and sharpness is good.

The deep blue of the river is very attractive!
Strong lines in this composition and a strong sense of depth, and I notice some interesting details by the riverside...
For instance the big wheel that has an ancient tradition as I can read in the note!

A very interesting capture of aqueducts and also a very beautiful view with all reflections in the perfectly calm water surface.

I wouldn't guess it is Syria. Interesting norias, I have never seen something like this. Very pleasant peaceful atmosphere.

Very nice image with a serene beauty to the quiet waters of the river and the beautiful reflections, could not miss the image of a Ferris wheel in this beautiful city, where the main attraction.
Good use of light and a beautiful natural color.

This is a great shot with a fine reflection. The reflection adds depth and balance for the shot. The river leads the eye into the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.

Mesut Abi merhaba,
Perspektif nefis.Derinlik etkileyici.Nehir ve gök birbirlerine nazire yapmışlar sanki.Saygılarımla.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the bridge which is giving depth to the scene. The trees are framing well the river. The good luminosity has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
