Photographer's Note

Originally I wanted to create a 3:1 ratio panoroma but it turned out to be just a 21megapixel hi-res image. It is a pity that we are only allowed for 800x800 pixel images here. Because every single detail is visible on this 4 image stitched photo. I am planning on printing it big as 60x90cm.

Hope you like it.

Note: That little black mark on top right side is a seagull. I didn't want to clone it out because it is clearly visible on the large version.


As for the fountain:
I wanted to write down the history in English but it will take quite some time. So I will do it briefly if you don't mind.

The Tophane Fountain is an 18th century fountain and built built on 1732 by Ahmet Aga for Sultan Mahmut 1st.

Nearly a century after it's been built a fire has destroyed it's dome shaped roof and it's been rebuilt 1957.

The fountain restored on 2006 by the water company Saka Su.

For the history of the fountain in Turkish:
