was taken in somewhere between Nemrut and Kahta...
The city of Adıyaman provides shops and infrastructure to an agricultural region watered by the River Euphrates. It is not an industrial city, people riding mules and donkeys are still a common sight. The Atatürk reservoir is near the city and with more investment in irrigation, this could become a richer agricultural zone. The people are religious and conservative; it is hard to find a beer in Adıyaman, or other social amenities like cafes, cinemas, and theatre. The cuisine is typical of south-east Turkey, including dishes like çiğ köfte and Maraş-style ice-cream.
The Türkmen identity persisted into the 20th century although today Adıyaman is inhabited by a cosmopolitan mixture of people from other parts of Turkey. There is a small town feel to the place far warmer than the rambling mess that has become of bigger cities like nearby Urfa.

Great picture, good framing, the tree in the foreground is well placed and you have just the right amount of green grass at the front of the picture too. Interesting contrast of colours. The field lines,winding road and dotted trees all add to the scene. TFS

yes, I guess you've captured the quiteness here. Those lonely trees lost in the middle of those fields are a treat. This is beautifully composed. I love the winding road in the background. Strangely enough though, sharpness is a bit of an issue here...but it doesn't really make sens to me here since the tech specs are fine...
