Photographer's Note

This is Akdamar Island, the 2nd largest of 4 islands in Lake Van in eastern Turkey, showing the 3 boat piers and the 10th century Armenian Church. Taken looking east. There is a barbed wire fence separating this high limestone bluff from the fruit tree orchards and church grounds but in the middle of the island is an unlocked gate which I eventually found. This was high enough for me. The trail gets rougher and steeper and more dangerous for those determined to get to the summit.
