The mountain top right (Palandoken) is over 10,700 feet above sea level and was still snowcapped today and yesterday when this was taken. From the old stone citadel atop a hill overlooking Erzurum, which is almost 6000 feet above sea level. Looking south towards Iraq on the other side of those mountains and then some.

I like very much your point of view and composition which is topped by the beautiful snowcapped mountains and the brilliant blue sky. Depth and clarity are exquisite. The morning light and colours are not so intense but are very natural and agreeable. We get a comprehensive view of the city and some traces of daily life there. I can't resist exploring it and try to think what life is like there. They celebrated Chidren's day yesterday, the atmosphere is very tranquil. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

What a view!! A fine city, and I am drawn to the mosque on the left side of the frame. Nice seeing all the minarettes across the city too. The snow capped mountains make an incredible backdrop.
Thanks for sharing

A nice shot of Erzrum. You superbly captured the city in front of the snow-coverd mountains. Well done.

Interesting city view, rarely seen place (learn about the world, they say!). Beautiful light and blue sky, well exploited point of view. The white mountains in the back-ground are definitely of paramount importance to the success of the photo.

The mountains are fantastic, I can understand it is the early spring in Erzurum, perfect clarity and sharpness of the photo

The distance between the buildings and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the buildings. There is a good contrast between the colours of the picture.

I've always kicked my self for not getting out to Erzurum (and also to Nemrut Dagi). Good photo of the town with the spectacular snow capped range in the background.

Un excellent point de vue sur ta nouvelle ville de résidence et son bel environnement montagneux baignés de lumière.

very cool indeed.
nice to see the everyday life in this Turkish city.
such a strange combination to see the appartment blocks, then see the classic mosques, and to follow that up we see the snow capped peaks.
pretty cool indeed.
nice shot my friend

A really good view from this place! I like the colourful houses and the little mosques. The white mountains are great in background. Seems a nice city and the day was really beautiful. Light, colours and sharpness are very good! Good shot!

Town view well in contrast with the snow-covered mountains ridge far behind, Chris.
Light was favorable, distinct the colors and shown fine details of the buildings and minerats.
Excelent sharp photo, well rendered.
