Beautiful Turkey-- from the Air
I must confess to being prejudiced. After spending a lot of years in the lands of the Bible, my favorite, in terms of the visual side of things and the cordiality of the people and the variety of OT and NT sites that don't just involve indecipherable rocks and sand, is Turkey. Here are some of my favorite aerial shots of Turkey.
Among them you will see a cliff hanger of a monastery, a gaunt salt tree and archepelago, Hagia Sophia, Lake Van, a remarkable aqueduct and a dam, balloons over Cappadocia, a minaret in the middle of a bay, and two ancient Roman theatres, including the famous nearly intact one at Aspendos at the bottom. Enjoy.
