Photographer's Note

Another day's end....
A capture I've made a few days ago during my short boat trip from the Asian part of Istanbul to thes European part.

A scene which has influenced many Turkish and foreign poets or painters.

Here one of them :

Just beyond the sunset

Someone waits for me
Just beyond the sunset
Lies my destiny
Where the purple mountains
Lie in deep tranquillity
There I’ll find the treasure
Of love eternally

Just beyond the sunset
Waits someone so fair
Just beyond the sunset
All alone they wait there
Their hair is golden
The colour of the sand
Their eyes sparkle in the night
Like diamonds in your hand

Just beyond the sunset
Lies a home for me
Where the world is peaceful
Like a paradise should be
Just beyond the sunset
Someday is where you’ll find me

Just Beyond The Sunset
(July 1966)
