Sinop waterfront looking north east. Sinop is the only south facing harbour along the Black Sea coast because the peninsula it is built on curls around. Taken looking away from the sunset. It is situated approximately in the centre of the Turkish Black Sea coast, and has a long & chequered history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinop,_Turkey

Looks to be a delightful evening. I like the point of view and the play of the reflections over the rippling waters. Also, the beautiful warm light and colours.

The wideness of the sea is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the buildings. The light if the sunset is giving nice colors to the scene. Have a nice day.

delicious light in this idyllic early evening shot. A sense of tranquillity and real appeal with beautiful warm tones and captivating reflections on the sea that is lapping at the shore.
Enjoy the weekend - B.

Je ne connaissais pas cet endroit. Un endroit idéal pour la villégiature. Une belle mer calme et des beaux hôtels en bordure de mer. La lumière est spectaculaire.

My curiousity taken me to look up this town on Google-map, realized this town is the most northern town on the Black-sea in Turkey.
Reading the note, you had explained well how the angle of the peninsula allow dusk golden light on the waterfront houses. Looks as a fine resort town, good view of its promenade.
Enjoy your weekend,

This is a nice early evening shot. The low angle lighting provides warm colors for the scene. The inclusion of the dock creates a nice line through the scene.

That's a really lovely light you got there, so very well done with the management of it. That shade of blue on the right foreground is my favourite colour. The water looks so inviting and I just love how the cooler colours contrast with that warm golden light.
