Photographer's Note

It was late afternoon, red sundown 7:45, driving on the road E90 Ankara to Aksaray, returning to Nevsehir-Göreme.

Izzet stopped the car, seeing a lonely green leaf tree in a yellow field.
I stepped out the other site of the car bumping in to this leafless tree in front of the vast Salt Lake, Tuz Gölü called in Turkish. Vast indeed, with its 80 km lenght and 50 km width, providing 70% of the need for salt in Turkey with only a 30 cm thick salt layer dried out in summertime.

Night we arrived back in Göreme after a drive of 5 hours, tired we went to bed.

This was one of the first view when we arrived in Capadocia by nightbus passing the vast glowing dry landscape here early morning. No the bus didn’t stop then.
