touring the majestic lands of turkey with resident photographer murat dağaslan

Turkey occupies a truly unique geographic position as a transcontinental country that lies partly in Asia and partly in Europe, and boasts coastal shores of the Aegean Sea, Mediterranean Sea to the south, Greek Peninsula to the west, and Anatolia and part of Thrace to the east. It is also connected to the Sea of Marmara by the Dardanelles Strait to the northeast. Ancient ruins are scattered throughout the country and a variety of natural landscapes offer a seemingly endless array of alluring places to discover among Turkey’s approximate 783,562 square kilometers (roughly twice the size of Germany).

The composition from the sky makes the volcano much bigger and increases the…
