Another "reflectional" scene, this time from Gocek ! Walking on the ruins of an old turkish bath close to the shore.
Here you see a detail from one of the small islands in the bay of Gocek. This island is called "Hamam". Which translated means "turkish bath" . Once the island was been inhabited but end of the eighteenth century a series of heavy earthquakes ruined almost all of them. Also this turkish bath was ruined and stays now half under the sea level.
Göçek'ten bir yansıma bu dizinin ikinci karesi. Adacıklardan birinde sahildeki eski hamam kalıntısından denize girmeye çalışan bir turist.
Bu kare de Göçek yakınlarındaki Hamam adasından bir görüntü. Bu yörede yer alan çok sayıda adada bir zamanlar insanlar yaşamış. Ama 18.yüzyılın sonlarında meydana gelen çok sayıda depremler sonucunda adalar oturulamaz hale gelmiş. Bu adaya adını veren hamam da yıkılanlar arasında. Günümüzde büyük bölümü denizin altında kalmış.

Nice capture of the ruins.
Is this the same baths that are also called Cleopatras bath?

Ruins that have been back by the sea must be one of the most magical places, and you have captured is so beautifully here with the young girl bathing in the waters as they reclaim the buildings. This must be a fascinating place to explore!
Thanks and regards

I would say that the reflection in this case plays a relatively minor role, but the photo is well worth seeing in any case. The ruined environment is interesting and a human being, especially dressed in red, can brighten any view. The note provides very useful information.

An interesting note and a very interesting building. But of course the girl in red is the obvious eye-catcher here!

Beautiful "reflection" ;)
I like frame and colors.
Good light and sharpness.

An excellent composition that combines the atmosphere of the ancient ruins, I guess by the sea and the beautiful chromaticism of the girl with the red bathing suit and their reflections in the water, magnificent POV.
A superb light management, sharpness is also perfect to enjoy the picture.
Very pretty color, which gives a lot of life to the image.
Very well done.
Have a good day.

Belle lumière latérale qui donne un bel effet de contre-jour sur les contours de cette baigneuse.

That opening makes excellent framing for the girl. Good contrasty light. Red swimsuit adds colour nicely.
Looks like a place full of history, there's so many of those in Turkey!
