Hello Nikos,

For a minute I thought I was looking at the harbor in Rhodes. Then I read your note to find that there is another and just as beautiful an ancient port as that in Rhodes. Thanks for sharing the photo, and for the informative note. Bayazid II, son of "Mehmet the Conqueror" was not terribly bright. In 1503 Leonardo da Vinci wrote to him, asking for a job as a military engineer. He offered to build a bridge over the golden horn (241 meters across). It would have been the most beautiful bridge ever conceived. The Sultan and his own military engineers dismissed the idea. The bridge was built 500 years later in Ĺs, Norway. Tale a look at Leonardo's Bridge.

Your photograph is superb. The sky, the colors, the composition, the resolution...

Bulent

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :) my mother taught me that I should wish to the others something I'd like to have muself, so I wish you enough time for all the things you want to do and all the places you want to see and all the people you want to meet :)
