The Lycian rock tombs of Dalyan cut into the cliffs on the opposite shore of the Dalyan Çayı River from my guesthouse. They date from 400 BC. Here's a daytime shot from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycia#mediaviewer/File:Dalyan_-_Caunos2.JPG

Your picture gives splendid light and lovely gold yellow colours.
Wonderful place with pleasant colour to look at.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Une très belle réalisation qui ressort fortement dans la galerie, rendant toutes les autres photos pâle d'envie.La lumière sur ces ruines est tout simplement magique.

Hello Chris, very nice image here, it looks like a painting to me. Great orange tones in the composition. Love the atmosphere also. Well done.

A majestic orange light upon the carved shrines and ancient built caves on the rocks, Chris.
Well done night scene, clarity and almost 3D effect(fine DOF, that's to say).
I am impressed, an intriguing place photography-wise, and an immaculate 30 sec. exp.

Using a tripod and a shutter speed of 30 seconds is allowing me to see the details and the colors of the Lycian rock tombs. It also has a special effect on the colors. Well done, have a nice day.

The Lycian rock tombs so famous are lit up wonderfully to create a mysterious mood. The deep shadows create a strong 3D feel in the picture. Fabulous exposure for this fine picture!
Have a good WE

Now that's got t be the most interesting travel subject I've seen here in ages. You did so well shooting at night and from a moving boat. I live the warm tones and light. An immaculate and fascinating image. And yet another must-see place in Turkey or me, next to Gobekli Tepei.
Thanks for sharing

A great close up of the Tombs at night. Great detail. This was the view from the Villa we rent every year from the other side of the river. Looking at the date you took the shot we were there not long after you.

Guess it's the first night shot I see of these tombs. It's a very good shot, the exposure is just perfect. You got good colours, light and details.

I have seen these a few times during daytime, but never at night. Very well done, TFS!
