Photographer's Note

Pamukkale means "Cotton castle" in turkish. It is situated Turkey's Inner Aegean region, in the River Menderes valley. The area contains hot springs and tavertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. The ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine city of Hierapolis was built on top of the white castle. Romans visited the site for the haeling properties of the springs and there is even a pool in which cleopatra has bathed. It is a world heritage site
