Birecik Dam and hydroelectric power plant, part of the Southeastern Anatolia Project is situated within the district. The Roman city of Zeugma is now drowned in the reservoir behind the dam.
The Northern Bald Ibis used to nest here and winter in the deserts of Arabia, up to 1,000 pairs in the 1960s. Now a few dozen birds remain and these no longer migrate but remain protected year-round in Birecik.
Birecik is a bridge across the Euphrates and a useful stopping place on the road from Şanlıurfa to Gaziantep, with waterside restaurants.

Bonjour, cher Atilgan,
Magnifique prise de vue automnale. Une véritable peinture aux couleurs très agréables.
Une image de qualité avec un texte d'accompagnement fort intéressant.

Spectacular autumn colors with clear reflections. I like the way the light falling on the mountain creating magical colors. Sharpness and depth are great.

Muhteşem bir yansıma.
Renk uyumu harika ama en güzeli sağdaki 'mavi leke'

Splendid and quiet place with golden colors and soft light. Nice framing with the reflections on the water and the blue spot made by the boat.
jacquest (18919) 2012-01-12 9:25
Thank you for the visit on my here.
Here, you have caprured a very nice fall landscape with superb reflections in the water. There is a nice variety of beige tones, soft and warm. Well done.
ikeharel (65187) 2012-01-13 1:23
Fine mirror on the lake, with a good light managed.
I think a more towards the left switch POV would give a view where the mountain slope meet ground's, but that'd be my oppinion only - the photo is nice shown scenery.
sandpiper (6788) 2012-01-13 2:04
Beautiful composition, reflection and warm tones.
mkamionka (33661) 2012-01-13 7:57
beautiful colors. I like the dominating golden tones. It has a feeling of autumn. Nice rock formations in the distance. Well chosen POV with the vivid reflection.
Very well done,
mafegan (8624) 2012-01-13 17:34
A beautiful scene and so sharp throughout. The little blue boat makes a nice contrast to the autumn leaves and brown rocky hills. Cheers, Marlene
jemaflor (91241) 2012-01-15 1:25
Lovely reflections on water, great mirror ! Good angle to give a well balanced composition with the boat and the golden cliffs in the bg.
vladic (4537) 2012-01-16 12:34
Quelle belle explosion de couleurs de l'automne, qui donnent cet aspet "couleur or" et les réflexions sur l’eau qui sont des atouts à la composition. Ce petit coin est vraiment très sympathique.

Merhaba dear Atilgan
Happy New Year to you and your family. I apologise for my delay in responding, as I have been in Malaysia for 3 weeks. This photo has great visual impact. It's colours, particularly the golden tones, are very attractive, as are the reflections on the water. An idyllic scene which makes me feel very calm looking at it.

Nice one...a wider view of one of your earlier posts with the blue boat certainly a strong focal point. The quiet waters provide a fine mirror image

عکس خیلی قشنگی است از دریاچه
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-02-11 20:21
Same place, another picture.
The other picture was focused on the little boat
and the trees, this picture is focused on the
surrounding. Both pictures are beautiful: great
light management and composition.
Morteza_E (879) 2012-02-19 1:16
Trees combined with the sky is very beautiful.
mohammad_H (9804) 2012-03-06 7:18
Beautiful landscape of rivers and trees and its reflection in water and the proper color you've recorded very interesting
jusninasirun (17162) 2012-03-21 1:33
Wonderful autumn colors and that small boat underneath the tree breaks the monotomy of colors in this scene. Grand view with pristine reflection.
