Gümbet Beach is a little cove just west of Bodrum. These days, this is what Lonely Planet says about Gümbet: "Since it's just 5km from Bodrum, party-palace Gümbet got debased faster than other peninsula villages. Now more or less a British colony, Gümbet is an outpost of neon, cheap cocktails, energy drinks and table-dancing. In winter, the place is derelict."
There was a time when Gümbet was a tranquil beach where we listened to cicadas at night instead of disco music, where we could attempt to count the stars rather than neon signs or laser shows. I refuse to forget...
Gümbet Canlı İken
Gümbet Plajı, Bodrumun hemen batısında küçük bir koydur. Bu günlerde, Lonely Planet Gümbet hakkında şöyle diyor: "Bodrumdan sadece 5 km olduğu için parti-sarayı Gümbet, yarımadanın diğer köylerinden daha hızlı alçalmış. Şimdi aşağı yukarı bir İngiliz kolonisi, Gümbet bir neon, ucuz kokteyller, enerji içecekleri ve masa-dansının ileri karakolu. Kışın, yer sahipsiz kalır."
Bir zaman vardı ki Gümbet, geceleri disko müziği yerine ağustos böceklerini dinlediğimiz, ışıklı ilanları ya da lazer gösterileri yerine yıldızları saymaya kalktığımız sakin bir plajdı. Unutmayı reddediyorum...

manca un po' di nitidezza, ma l'impatto è molto bello, ben composto e con una splendida luce.
Forse con in taglio verticale si riusciva a prendere tutto il riflesso, ma non so cosa c'era nella parte bassa.

Another excellent scanned picture from the 80's Murat, what a nice jetty with small boats and a little sailing boat, a charming location, excellent save
All the best, have a good start of week

The light is delicious and makes this picture nice. I also like the reflections of the mast and the boat in the mildly rippled water.
May I suggest that for such scanned pictures, to keep the size of the picture at around 800 pixels in order to boost the visual quality...just a suggestion!

Nice capture, good reflections on a very calm sea.
I can understand your feelings about what was once a peaceful place being turned into a noisy neon city.
Full of drunks, usually, I am ashamed to say are British. That is the reason. we go to Dalyan each year.
We can still count the stars but over the years it is slowly changing for the worse.

calm water surface and boats anchored cam amke one day-dreaming while sitting on shore's.
Light shed its golden rays, made a fabulous scene.
Well scanned the old stuff.

Today you present a fabulous shot here of the little boats anchored of the little pier. The golden colours on the boats is magical on the beautiful calm water. A real scene of peaceful tranquility. Very nice my friend.

A bit of nostalgia, peace and quiet, beautiful old documentary photo, well captured and composed

nice the view of the place with the lonely sailing boat as the other boats near to the wooden jetty to dominating the scene.I like the whole scenery as looks like as a painting.

I fully share your feelings about the transformation of this place, I'm sorry that people allowed this to happen, I often worry that something like this might someday happen to the place I live. Your picture is beautiful and evokes nostalgia for the good, old, quiet days that, unfortunately, weren't appreciated by all. I absolutely love the light, the colours and the atmosphere. The balance of your composition matches the scenery superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

And right so, one shouldn't forget about the beauty of a place that has been hijacked by the party tourists.
Jugging from your picture (I suppose it is an old scan?) it really looked like a pleasant place to while away the hours by a good glass of wine rather than the infamous wodka-redbull ...
have a great day

Harika bir fotoğraf olmuş.
Hem özlem gideriyor,hemde insanı özendiriyor.

What sad what you tell in the note, this happens more or less in lots of beautiful places, discovered by tourist and ruined by them
Anyway you presented here a charming and quiet ambience with calm waters, all illuminated by the golden last hours of the day
Greetings and congrats

Another interesting archive photo from 1980th, good minimalist composition, it's really simple but very nice scanned photo. I'd like to find my old films from 1980th. It would be amazing archive.
Greetings from Ural, Russia!

merhaba Murat Bey,
ne varsa eskilerde var, şimdilerde her yer bozulmuş, kalabalık yoruyor. Arşivden sade, dinhin, huzur veren görüntüsü ile enfes bir paylaşım, tebrikler
emeğinize sağlık, selamlar

very beautiful framing and light, the boat and the other elements are well positioned. I liked the color too. despite the time the image is nice.
