What a nice picture! Just like everything you normally photograph, by the way. I love the colour of the sky, and was it as hot as it looks in the picture?

Gorgeous!
I am hoping to visit Selçuk when I make my way to Turkey in a short while. It comes highly recommended.

p.s.: Have been secretly admiring your blog for a while.

How it arches without support at the top is very humbling science.

brilliant.

brilliant... the whole picture just captures the very essence of the Mediterranean- the azure sky, the heat, brown grass from the dry summer, bleached ruins (was this a hippodrome, by the way?) and a solitary tree

Roxana said...

yes, szerelem, it is truly beautiful. your composition is highly symbolic, the way you opposed the green tree to the ruin in the background...

Szerelem said...

Thank you all!

Pan: Efes was actually really pleasant and not that hot...we were lucky!

icon-o-plastic: Thanks and welcome! Oh, you must visit Selcuk. Efes is great and the town in itself is adorable and charming. When are you going and for how long?

.: Indeed.

TR: thank you!

Zuma: It was the agora if I remember correctly. This is probably my favourite picture out of all I took at Efes.

Roxana: Thank you :) I actually thought that tree looked really beautiful - especially with all the ruins in the foreground and the arch in the back...Efes was beautiful and the trees, grass and flowers coming into bloom added a lot to the ruins...

I was hoping to visit in Dec but I am guessing that's not going to happen.
Probably next Feb then.
:(

Somewhere in between I want to drop in Jordan for a quick dekko.
