Photographer's Note

This is an image of people bathing & having fun at the incredible site of the famous '' Travertine Terraces '' at Pamukkale.
In 1988 this natural wonder was declared a World Heritage Site.
The name Pamukkale is Turkish for Cotton Castle.
The city contains around 17 hot springs & travertines.
The Greco-Roman & Byzantine City of Hierapolis was built on top of the white castle & then in the mid 20th century hotels were built & have since been demolished - after considerable amount of damage was caused... on the old hotel sites artificial travertine pools were created.
People have bathed & had fun in these natural pools for thousands of years... & maybe thousands of years to come.
Enjoy.
