Taken from the Ali Kale (castle) restaurant, which offers this superb view of the city. The Phyrgian Rock tombs (2,500 years old) are floodlit in purple. The distinctive Ottoman houses along the river are all illuminated in red. Colours change every 10 minutes or so. Amasya is north east of Ankara. One of the prettiest towns in Turkey.

Hello dear Chris,
Very niceblue hour capture -almost birdseye view- of this beautiful city along Yeşilırmak.
Those thombs on rocks out my thoughts back to sixties where I spent there two wonderfull nights in my sleeping bag. The only problem was the shits of bats which covered my face !
TFS and best regards

Amazing view of a city I have not visited. By now you already have seen so much of Turkey than I have. Warm regards, Chris,

A well exposed blue hour composition with lots to retain the interest. An interesting blend of multi-coloured lights.

J'aime beaucoup cette photo à l'heure bleue. J'aime beaucoup le mouvement dans la vallée qui donne de très belle traînées de lumière rouge . L'ensemble est d'une très belle netteté.

Good afternoon Chris,
Beautiful lights of town situated along the valley.
The 30 sec. exp. was superbly collected as far as clarity and glare. Excelent photojob done, blue-hour par-excellence.

A lovely blue hour shot with the streaks of red and yellow adding to the beauty. Good work with the layers in the BG mountains.
The lit up parts on the near slope - what are they?

What a pretty blue hour photo! Sharp and well exposed, you must have laid your camera on something if you did not use a tripod. This is another Turkish town that i have not seen; good for you, you're getting around.
