Photographer's Note

Sunrise at Nemrut Mountain in south eastern Turkey. The headless statues in the bg, and the fg heads, look strangely incongruous. Built by Antiochus I, in the 1st century BC, the entire top of the mountain was removed to construct them, and the 2,134 m (7,001 ft) high summit is now capped by a tumulus, with a steep scree slope, visible at top right. The western terrace around the back is also worth a look.
