Taken Pamukkale, Denizli.A scene from the famous Pamukkale (cotton castle) close to the antique city of Hieropolis in western Turkey.
The white formations are typical for this area, created by the waters with high chalk content, dried up on the rocks. A wonderfull attraction for tourists.
The artificial lake at bottom (on street level) is been created since a few years.

Bonjour, Cher Mesut,
Quel spectacle que ces falaises naturelles blanches et ce lac où se promènent des palmipèdes !
Un lieu intéressant et qui mérite une visite.
Très bonne réalisation.

These cliffs are beautiful, and most unusual to me, I dont see these kind in my country. They look especially well presented against this lovely blue sky. The creation of the lake is a great idea too, it makes the area look even nicer and gives you the opportunity to capture this great reflection!
Thanks as always, best wishes for the weekend

You did well with the bright light and white rock which has plenty of detail. A lovely crisp image of an interesting subject. The little group of ducks in the FG balances the composition very well.
Kind Regards, Ann

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The wideness of the area is giving depth to the scene. The poimt of view is showing the details and colors of the cotton castle. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

You have made a good attempt here, choosing an excellent straight viewpoint for this photo. The straight view is really very good and the landscape composition works well, and the focus with deep DOF draws the attention not only to the white hill but also to the beautiful reflections and the people around. The photo itself is very well-exposed; the contrast against blue sky perfect. Excellent photo work.

Attractive chalk cirque appearing like snow, with its image mirrored in the calm waters. Unlike Nature scenes I have visited in our West, therefore amazing to behold.
eldancer1 (22413) 2013-12-06 7:38
Indeed! It's a beautiful landscape! Good to include the people for scale. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Avant de lire ta note, j'avais cru voir de la neige. Ta photo est merveilleuse et cette photo de craie blanche est une attraction exceptionnelle. A+ pour la qualité d'image qui nous fait voir ce site dans toute sa beauté avec de superbes reflets.
Bravo!… et bonne fin de semaine,
Romano46 (14454) 2013-12-06 13:26
sono abituato a vedere Pamukkale dall'alto con le sue vasche che si susseguono lungo il pendio della collina e vedere questa tua foso mi aiuta a capire meglio la particolarità del luogo che ho avuto occasione di visitare personalmente.
Qui sembra di essere in tutt'altra località, tra riflessi incantatiu, azzurro intenso e grande suggestione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
PaulVDV (18692) 2013-12-06 15:14
To me this is a new and an original view of the 'Cotton Castle'.
And I have to admit that the site looks much more impressive here than we usually see on pictures of it.
Best regards, Paul

Un beau point de vue sur la colline de Pammukale sous un ciel magnifique. On a vraiment l'impression qu'il s'agit d'une colline enneigée. J'avais publié une photo semblable de cet endroit il y a quelque mois. Salutations.

Curieuses falaises blanches, que l'on croirait faites de sel, qui se reflètent joliment dans le lac.

very beautiful colors and light and scharpnees dear turckisch friend
jacquest (17531) 2013-12-07 7:36
This is an amazing image and your note is quite useful not to confuse with a winter image and a summer image stitched together. But the contrast remains strong and beautiful with a superb light.
arnie (1213) 2013-12-07 7:40
A super shot. Taken from an angle I have not seen before, very sharp and good depth. A great place to visit.
ikeharel (46944) 2013-12-07 8:29
Good evening Mesut,
Another POV, not the usual from this unique location, with extraordinary nature phenomenon.
The white salt residue on the hill was very well balanced and contrast to the blue sky. Reflection on the water surface also superbly shown.
My cong.'s, have a nice weekend,
COSTANTINO (46454) 2013-12-07 13:59

The Cotton Castle ! What wonderful memories I have of this place !

A true, unique natural wonder of the world.
Thanks for sharing.

The clear water seems to have seduced a few ducks ! Great combinations of natural colors : blue, white and green.
Have a nice evening,
