Turkey Travel Photography

Turkey quickly made it to my top 5 favourite countries in the world. It all started with our stopovers in Istanbul – a city that lies on two continents: Europe and Asia. This is reflected in numerous aspects of its culture such as the food, the architecture, the religion and the mentality overall. Istanbul has been a renowned trading hub for centuries.ย  One thing that impressed me here was the great quantity of shops that sell all kinds of things.

In Istanbul our favourite spot was the grand bazaar. Here you can admire a variety local arts from chandeliers to silver and gold and terracotta bowls etc. At every corner you can smell the aroma of spices coming from the tiny shops that sell not only spices but several kinds of teas. Yes and tea here is not just tea. In Istanbul you can find all kinds of teas infused with herbs and flowers like roses, cinnamon, clover etc. I really loved this place as apart from being a treat to the senses, it also offered several photographic opportunities.

After falling in love with Istanbul, we decided to visit other parts of Turkey namely Cappadocia and the Turkish Riviera. We decided to visit Cappadocia in Winter and the snow cover on the rock formations was just magical. We have also done a road trip along the Turkish Riviera starting from Antalya, moving on to Kas, Fethiye, Marmaris and ending this trip in Bodrum.
