I took this picture yesterday near the Adıyaman.
you enjoy it.
have a great week ...
Central District (The city of Adıyaman): According to 1990 census the population of the central district of the province was 170,75 including bucaks and villages. However due to recent migration, mostly caused by the displaced villagers due to the Atatürk dam (part of Southeastern Anatolian project, called GAP), the population is estimated to be over 200,000. GAP has accelerated the economic activity of the city, especially in light industry. Adıyaman rapidly developed after becoming a province in 1954. Although it is now a fairly modern city, the major activity in the central district still remains to be farming and animal husbandry. Atatürk dam, 25 miles from the central city, combined with the deep historical roots of the region has made tourism an important activity for the city. Pirin caves and rock tombs are important historical sites in the central region.
Formerly HÜSNÜMANSUR, Arabic HISN MANSUR, city located in a valley of southeastern Turkey. Founded in the 8th century by the Umayyad Arabs near the site of ancient Perre, Hisn Mansur was later fortified by Caliph Harun ar-Rashid and became the chief town of the area, replacing Perre. Ruled successively by the Byzantines, Seljuq Turks, and the Turkmen Dulkadir dynasty after the Arabs, it was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire near the end of the 14th century. Under the Turkish republic, it was renamed Adiyaman in 1926. The ruins of Perre are just to the north. The city is a local market for the agricultural products of the area.
The region around Adiyaman contains mountains and plateaus drained by the Euphrates River and its tributaries. Products include cereals, cotton, tobacco, pistachio nuts, and grapes. Pop. (1990) 100,045.
Adiyaman is one of the oldest settlements in history, dating back to 40 th century B.C. Historical findings indicate that between 7.000 and 3000 B.C. Paleolithic, Neolithic and Chalcolithic Ages reigned in the area. It has been the host of many civilizations, including Hittite, Persian Kommagene, Roman and Byzantine. Founded at its present place, in thie 7 th century by the Ummayyads, Adiyaman later housed several empires and states, including Anatolian Seljuks and finally the Ottomans. In the republican era, Adiyaman had been a district of Malatya province until 1954. At that time it was given the status of province.

Intriguing lines, my friend!
Winding roads are always a fascination with me, this one is nicely framed and makes me curious...
Good late summer colours!
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2006-09-04 1:52
Excellent sense of depth. The "S" of the road breaking the picture is lovely.

Magnificent lines in this composition with excellent sense of depth. Sery well seen this road with the "S" broken.
TFS and have a nice week,

Merhaba Burak Abi,
Mükemmel bir bakış açısı.Şu ana kadar benim "S" şeklinde bir yolu içeren karem olmadı, fakat bu tür kareler çok hoşuma gidiyor. Özellikle ağırlık noktasındaki iki ağaç kompozisyonu çok iyi tamamlıyor. Ellerinize sağlık.
selam ve saygılarımla....
papagolf21 (103834) 2006-09-04 3:44
Bonjour, mon ami Burak,
Nous avons l'impression d'être plongés dans un film tant la composition est étonnante.
Une grande réussite, Burak, cette route sinueuse qui traverse une sorte de désert avec ces lignes à haute tension présentent un aspect surréaliste. La présence des arbres fait également partie de notre étonnement.
tcht (7565) 2006-09-04 4:12
I like your composition of two roads + two trees, and they're in a nice symmetry. Good vertical format to illustrate depth. But I am not so sure with your low PoV, as I find the grass a tiny bit distracting and I am not able to focus 100% on the road and trees compo. Overall a very pretty shot and thanks for the info.
ChrisJ (116108) 2006-09-04 4:12
I like the symmetry of the 2 trees with the 2 strips of visible road. The 's' curves are wonderful, & add good depth. Tfs!

"Hit the road Jack":-) Excellent composition and perspective, good note.
riclopes (35577) 2006-09-04 5:02
Uhau! What a magnificent image, meu amigo Burak. The road sliding down and up over those hills, is absolutely a great vision. The depth, the layers and colors and even the detail of those two lonely trees...I really love it!
Congratulations and have a nice week,
efigesta (12188) 2006-09-04 5:06
Hi my friend

Ömürler bitiyor ama yollar bitmiyor, güzel bir kare olmuş.
Yol adeta bir yılan gibi kıvrılıp gidiyor, ellerine ve yüreğine sağlık.

Burak, guzel olmus, bence polarizasyon filtresi ile daha mavi bir gokyuzu olabilirmis. Renklerle biraz oynadigim bir calisma ekte.

Interesting widing road. Fine perspective and amazing landscape. Regards.

Hi Burak, very nice superposition of layers with a different light, very nice this road...
sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2006-09-05 4:51
Excellent POV. Love the road running through the fields like a long winding snake. Those trees give a nice scale of things and shows us the vastness of the landscape.
With Greetings from India
marianita (3455) 2006-09-05 5:07
nice curves! , well framed. nice contrast between dry yellowish landscape and dark road
jhm (155330) 2006-09-05 6:59
You show us a fantastic picture with the twist road in middle, it's almost a picture out of the desert with the pylons, the road lead us depth in background to the mountains!
Very well done!
Have a nice day,

Burak, this is a perfect shot very well executed and captured, very well defined, a good and deep perspective!!!... the winding life's road,isn't?
Thank you, my dear friend
feather (51130) 2006-09-05 7:18
The never-ending road; very good capture of it winding its way through the countryside. I think I also see it in the distant mountains? I also find the two little trees a nice detail.
cunejo200 (7281) 2006-09-05 7:43
These are fascinating lines. Good scenic view with winding roads. Technical details are good. Greetings,

A really great composition. Looks like a big snake in the burned yellow landscape. Very well seen and a great job!
Vato_Law (12732) 2006-09-05 18:02
Another title could be endless road. Really nice the effect that this sinuous road causes on the photo, going up and down thru the hills, just like a snake. The mautral colours and the light of the photo along with this very nice view result in a very nice composition.
Scharan (14144) 2006-09-05 19:34
Cores, composição e perspectiva excelentes.
Cenário incrível muito bem registrado.

Also good note.
Wll done my friend
keribar (43841) 2006-09-05 23:23
Winding lines which remind me the Great Wall of China, because they seem endless: It was a good decision to stop the car and find the angle for this beautiful shot
A big smile - Izzet
Angshu (56760) 2006-09-06 3:38
How much simpler can a caption be? How simple a compo but so intriguing...the serpentine road weving it's way amidst the yello fascinates me. The trees do provide an idea of the scale & shows how vast the landscape is
kermit350 (9016) 2006-09-06 4:07
Hello Burak, je ne sais pas ou tu as trouvé cet endroit mais sil nexistait pas il faudrait linventé, cette image est très très originale, je trouve qu'il y a du mouvement dans ton image grâce aux ondulations du terrain, la route ressemble à un petit serpent argenté, le contraste des couleurs est magnifique, bien amicalement...............................Hello Burak, I do not know or you found this place but s`il did not n`existait it would be necessary l`inventé, this image is very very original, I find that there is movement in your image thanks to the undulations of the ground, the road resembles a small silver plated snake, the contrast of the colors is splendid, sincerely
goodwill (4226) 2006-09-06 4:49
Ha ha ha, I like this shot,a road somewhat serpentine, but going straight. It has meaning.
Good shot man,

graphic and coloured as i like. quiet irreal.
congrats Burak for this picture
gezgin37 (3766) 2006-09-08 5:46
İnişli, çıkışlı ve kıvrılarak uzanan yol çok etkileyici. Yolun kenarındaki ağaçların konumu süper. Herşeyi bir arada bulmamız mümkün değil ama, biraz bahar yeşili biraz da beyaz bulutlar ne muhteşem olurdu değil mi?
Tebrikler ve paylaştığın için teşekkürler.
Selamlar / Selçuk

That's simply excellent ! The cropping is perfect, the perspective is beautiful and the snake-road beautiful. Very well composed.

Gercekten etkileyici bir yilan edasi olusturacak acidan yakalanmis bir resim. On tarafta kadraja giren bitkiler gerideki kurakligin etkisini biraz azaltmis ki iyi olmus. Bir tek su elektrik direkleri olmasaymis cok daha dramatik bir goruntu saglanabilinirmis. Sevgiyle,
nwoehnl (122) 2006-09-09 7:58
Hi Burak. I had missed this one but now I found it ;) One of your best so far, I think - a fine choice of the vertical format, a great impression of depth well supported by the meandering road that leads the viewer's eye towards the background. Also a vivid color contrast with the various tonalities and textures found in this undulating landscape. Nice shot.
anesugur (18789) 2006-09-09 16:39
Bu kurak araziden bile ne muhteşem görüntüler yakalıyor insan.
Tabiki bakmasını ve görmesini bilirse.
Ellerine sağlık. Uğur
pranab (5354) 2006-09-10 3:27
this reminds me of my drive through vast landscape of montana. very well composed and captured. the meandering road through this barren land like a serpent stands out and gives us the feeling of depth in this composition.
nicole80 (2163) 2006-09-11 4:12
I like this way serpenting in the brown desert !
Well done !
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-09-15 13:21
Beauutiful perspective of this road leading to the distant, hardly visible mountains. Great
capture and colours.
sebcz (2345) 2006-09-16 4:41
A very original POV. Almost classic composition 2/3, this winding road is beautiful. I like the way you shot it, from the ground, it gives some more feeling of the depth.
jujudum (192) 2006-09-17 22:27
Wow what a wonderful image ... I'm breathless by the composition, colors, lines and the many details you can find in this simple picture.Difference and presence of foreground and background are just great !! Electrical structure and the two littles trees add a lot of interest. I could easily take more than few minutes just looking to a photo like this one. Really deep photo ... and fascinating landscape. Thank you a lot to share your talent.
recepyuksel (17808) 2006-09-20 10:23
Kıvrılıp giden yollar ile gördüğüm en iyi kompozisyonlardan birisi...Tebrikler
celinaconroy (717) 2006-09-23 2:01
The hills that brake up the symmetery of the road and the general layering of contrasting colours and focal points makes a very fascinating image as the eye follows the road to the next interesting part of the landscape.
izler (8) 2006-09-23 12:25

A superb abstract sort of image, a ribbon like road disappearing into the hills, two trees, loads of pylons and a great pov.
A very good image of modern human activity in the landscape.
noborders (1010) 2007-04-03 18:07
It's funny, I was on the same road and kept exactly the same vision (without photo) of it - same colours, same landscape, plus maybe some isolated oil wells...
Ellinize saglik, gerçekten harika !

kato (11630) 2012-06-11 15:13
This is so attractive good photograh, so it's interesting and impressive to see a rolling plain and a winding road. Two trees are arranged across the road in the exquisite position. And, it's harmonized and balanced well naturally for color contrast between the plain, the low mountain in behind and blue sky.
Have a nice day.
jaywalker (16105) 2012-07-05 14:53
Hi Burak, A wonderful photo with the depth brilliantly created with the winding road, excellent warm light & the two little trees finish the picture superbly, kind regards Wilson,

What a lovely POV, with the winding road running across the hills and valleys ! Great contrast between the bright colours of the hills in the foreground and the subdued greys in the background.
Thanks for sharing and best regards.
CanmoreKevin (2111) 2012-07-30 19:04
I am digging way back here but I really like this. The road leads into the centre of the photo and then completely disappears. Nice distinct layers.

Merhaba Burak Bey
Arazinin kıvrımlarıyla uyumlu uzun ince siyah asfalt yolun sararmış otlar arasındaki salınımı çok hoş görünüyor. Aşık Veysel'in "uzun ince bir yoldayım" türküsü de uzaktan uzağa kulaklarımızı çınlattı bu arada.

holmertz (55007) 2014-09-16 1:22
I didn't see this photo before, but it's a fine shot of the very typical scenery of eastern Anatolia. You found a perfect POV showing the road winding through the "endless" landscape. It reminds me strongly of long journeys by bus or train in the 1970's. It also gives me a pleasure to add 2 points to this photo, giving it a total of 200 :-).
ruisc_pt (11090) 2014-09-21 14:11
A wonderful landscape with a fantastic dynamic line.

great composition indeed
have a nice time
gervaso (15217) 2014-11-17 1:55
Wonderful view of this road, with parts of it disappearing in the middle of the mountains. Very good perspective, and the soft colors of the mountains in the background, almost mergint with the sky, give a very good depth to the image. Wonderful composition! Excellent job!

Charrua (280) 2015-01-31 0:37
Superb snapshot. The winding road seems to keep going forever along the yellowish fields until getting lost in the mountains in the background. The towers of the high-voltage power transmission lines disturb a little, but I guess they are everywhere now.
nivs24 (123) 2015-02-04 13:23
