A "days end" from my most beloved antique city Aphrodisias in Karia (Western Anatolia) . Sun sets behind the main temple, the temple of Aphrodite which gave her name to the city.
And so a year ends up in a few hours and we shall start for a new year tomorrow morning !
I hope it will be far better than the year 2012 and wish all the best to my friends here at TE !
Bir koca yıl daha sona eriyor ! Büyük tutku'm Afrodisias antik kentine adını veren Afrodit tapınağının arkasında gün batmada.
Birkaç saat sonra 2012'yi de uğurlayacak, yarın sabah yeni bir yıl'a gözümüzü açacağız.
Umarım 2012'yi aratmayan bir yıl olur 2013 !
Bu vesile ile buradan, bütün TE dostlarıma her şeyin gönüllerince olacağı yeni bir yıl diliyorum !

Good morning Mesut,
the last days of years are seen with this sunset scenery with the sun to be hidden behind the columns of the ancient temple, and after that behind the horizon.A good contribution to the passing by 2012.
I wish,to you and your family a wonderful, peaceful and prosperous New Year,Danos

Hallo Herr Nachbar!
Das hat ja hingehauen! ;-)) Jetzt bin ich nur gespannt, ob mein Foto die Gnade der Aufseher findet ;-)
Dein Foto gibt wunderschön die Stimmung von Abschluss, und Ende wieder - ein irgendwie feierliche Stimmung.
Dir und den Deinen nochmals alles alles Gute für 2013!
Bleib' vor allem gesund!
Herzliche Grüße aus dem frühlingshaften Deutschland!

A most beautiful and appropriate photograph for the last one of the year. The sun is setting on the old year but, symbolically, your favorite ruins show that things with a strong foundation will stand the test of time.
My best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year,

Hello dear Mesut,
a lovely atmospheric picture, suggestive and romantic. I like very much the depth and the mystery, the beautiful colours in the sky and the warm light touching the pillars for the last time before it disappears -to return the next day again! Congratulations and thank you!
I wish you all the best and a great year full of Love, Health and Joy!

Ce coucher de soleil à travers les colonnes de cette cité antique est très beau et présage une bonne nouvelle année.
Mes meilleurs vux pour 2013!

This really is a splendid view of Aphrodisias.
The colours of the sky and the shapes and lines of the clouds are a fantastic backdrop for the imposing, dark columns on the foreground.
My best wishes for a very happy 2013!

What an incredible way to end a year, by capturing a scene that has stood the test of time and can still present such beauty to r modern eyes. I love your capture of the light here and the composition of the ruined columns. Really nicely done, a brilliant shot.
All the best
