Nineth capture of my Bosphorus Beauties series is a scene from seashore at İstinye (this time again on the european side of Bosphorus). This capture is been scanned from a slide.
The Bosporus or Bosphorus, also known as the Istanbul Strait, (Turkish: İstanbul Boğazı) (Greek: Βόσπορος) is a strait that forms the boundary between the European part (Rumelia) of Turkey and its Asian part (Anatolia). The world's narrowest strait used for international navigation, it connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara (which is connected by the Dardanelles to the Aegean Sea, and thereby to the Mediterranean Sea). It is approximately 30 km long, with a maximum width of 3,700 metres at the northern entrance, and a minimum width of 700 metres between Kandilli and Aşiyan; and 750 metres between Anadoluhisarı and Rumelihisarı. The depth varies from 36 to 124 metres in midstream.
Bu serinin dokuzuncu karesinde bu kez tekrar Boğaz'ın Avrupa yakasından, İstinye önlerinden bir görüntü. Bu görüntüyü 35 mm slide'dan taradım.
İstanbul Boğazı , İstanbulun Avrupa ve Anadolu yakalarını ayıran bir su yoludur. Dünyanın ,uluslararası deniz yolu taşımacılığına açık, en dar su yoludur ve Karadenizle Marmara Deniz’ini (ki o da Çanakkale Boğazı ile, Ege’ye ve dolayısı ile sonuçta Akdeniz’e kavuşur) birleştirir. 30 km uzunluğundadır ve en geniş kısmı Karadeniz girişinde olup 3700 m dir. En dar yeri ise, Kandilli ile Aşiyan arasında olup, 700 m dir. Anadolu Hisarı ile, Rumeli Hisarı arası da 750 m dir. Boğazın orta kısımlarında, suyun derinliği 36 – 124 m arasında değişir.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the fishing boat. The good luminosity is making the colours to shine. Have a nice day.

Received you my e-mail yesterday!
Congratulations 2400th picture on TE.
It are exactly the seagulls that these boat controlled, one on the roof, one as pilot before on the boat.
Sharpness and clarity are perfectly, also lovely reflections.
Excellent composition, colours and presentation are very nice.
Very well done, TFS.

A beautiful rustic scene of the colourful but battered boat and its distorted reflection.

Hello dear Mesut,
what a beautiful composition of colours and textures, a very rich looking simple composition thanks to the excellent depth, vividness and brightness of the colours. The combination of tight framing with strong perspective and sense of depth is marvellous. The reflections are amazing, warm and cold tones have been distributed in the frame in a wonderful way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Ein wunderschönes "altes Schätzchen" mit viel Individualität rund um das kleine alte Fischerboot. Wenn das erzählen könnte ...
Die Spiegelungen sind sehr schön wiedergegeben. Dieses Foto und seine ganze Stimmung gefallen mir sehr.

I've enjoyed viewing this series of yours, and I think this one is the best.
the black tires along the hull is a great addition. as is the blue peeling paint around the windows.
sweet reflections too.
