Photographer's Note

I took this Boat photo at Kizkalesi in Mersin,Turkey when i went there to take Maiden's Castle photo.

Kızkalesi (Maiden's Castle)
Situated 60 km. to Mersin, in the Erdemli province, it is 800-1000 m. away from the remains of the Mediterranean Sea. Over the years, its tie to mainland has disappeared and it is now an Island. Corcyus, which was established during the 4th century B.C. by the Hellens, and expanded during the Roman and Byzantine Periods, was an important harbour during the 8th century. The castle was established to prevent attacks from the Sea. It contains remains of a church.
