Photographer's Note

I continue with another plane shot that might be interesting...
I found this one on my memory card... It was taken around 10mn earlier than my previous post, but I don't even really remember the time I shot it, as I was half asleep!
But after a close study of the satellite map of Turkey,I found this to be the lake created by the Keban dam on the Euphrates river. The south bank (down)in in Elazig province, while the north bank is in Tunceli province. Shot almost vertically, at 30 000ft.(10 000m)... We can see roads and houses, so maybe some Turkish friends can locate exactly the place.

Je continue avec une autre vue d'avion qui pourrait être intéressante. Je l'ai prise environ 10mn avant la précédente, mais ne me rappelle a peine l'avoir prise, jetant a moitie endormi a ce moment la. Après étude de la Turquie sur cartes satellite, j'ai identifié cet endroit comme étant le lac de rétention du barrage Keban, sur l'Euphrate. La rive sud est dans la province d'Elazig et la rive nord est la province de Tunceli. Pris presque verticalement depuis une altitude de 10 000m(30 000pds.)
