The Dardanelles, formerly known as Hellespont, literally "Sea of Helle", is a narrow strait in northwestern Turkey connecting the Aegean Sea to the Sea of Marmara. It is one of the Turkish Straits, along with its counterpart, the Bosphorus. Like the Bosphorus, it separates Europe (the Gallipoli peninsula) from the mainland of Asia. The strait is an international waterway, and together with the Bosphorus, the Dardanelles connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.The strait has often played a strategic role in history. The Dardanelles is unique in many respects. The very narrow and winding shape of the strait is more akin to that of a river. It is considered one of the most hazardous, crowded, difficult and potentially dangerous waterways in the world. Water flows in both directions along the strait, from the Sea of Marmara to the Aegean via a surface current and in the opposite direction via an undercurrent.The currents produced by the tidal action in the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara are such that ships under sail must await at anchorage for the right conditions before entering the Dardanelles...

Maybe would i have lowered the POV to place the "roof" of the restaurant in front of the sky instead of in front of the horizon line
BUt well done though ;)

I was not very active those days, so I missed this one, full remembrance of the summer dawns. i like very much the waiter ebtereing in the picture to serve the customers seated at their tables. The B&W mood insists on the lines and shapes.
