This week’s photo was captured along Turkey’s southern coast, also commonly referred to as the Turkish Riviera. This overlook is located just outside the heart of Antalya near the city’s Archaeology Museum and can be found at the end of the city’s historic tram line. It had been gently raining all day, then towards the end of the afternoon the sun broke through briefly. I lucked out and happened to be near a great little cafe. Eager to soak up the winter sunlight (it was February), I settled in to enjoy a local specialty: freshly squeezed pomegranate mixed with fresh orange juice. As I relaxed and enjoyed the sun and my drink – I noticed the hazy feel which was created by the clouds colliding with the near by mountains and looked up just in time to see this gentleman pausing to enjoy the view. Enjoy!
