Hi Patrick,
I shouldn't do this... I shouldn't show favoritism to a photo from my homeland! But what can I do? When the photo is so striking, I cannot ignore it, either. You have caught a very unique corner of Pamukkale. Those pink Azaleas on the white deposits look so pretty. The sarcophagus rising out of the travertines attests to the ravages of time. The green Menderes Valley in the background balances the white of the foreground. Well seen and exquisitely rendered!

I think the flowers are oleander? Azaleas are native to China / Korea / Japan. I used to have oleander growing in my backyard in Australia. I saw oleander in Turkey Greece Italy south France, Spain Portugal and Morocco.
