This is the small waterfall called "Suyun Gözü" (which can be translated as "Eye of the Water") at Arif Village, in Finike, Antalya, Turkey. In ancient times this water was diverted to the Lycian city of Arykanda with waterways and canals, and nowadays local villagers still acquire their water with hoses from the same place. The spring itself was considered sacred at that time, for that reason near the waterfall the rocks were carved to place steleai for possibly Nymphes, water deities. The spring then grows with other springs around joining it and forms River Arykandos, nowadays known as Aykırıçay going down to Mediterrenean near Finike...

Hi Tolga, good shot, with a good exposure on the fall, good colors and light.
the light is in my opinon a little bit too strong on the top part of the image.

good job to take a long exposure time. Saturation could have been a bit increased; but nevertheless, well done.

çok güzel bir uzun pozlama. Sudaki etkisi harika olmuş. Gerçi hikaye ile çelişirdi ama keşke hortumları bir şekilde kaybetseydin.
