Last spring we went to cappadocia.. cappadoccia is famous for its abstract landscape and rock formations. in third geological period when three volcanoes in the area errupted ,volcanoe ashes, lava with earthquakes erosion and wheather conditions form the valleys and fairy chimneys. these rock formations become home for the early christians. With its unique landscape, cappadoccia become religious refuge in early days of christianity. christians escaped from the persecution of the roman empire in the second century came to cappadoccia. rocks were easy to carve so christians carved houses monastries and chapels. they establish monastic communities here.

I tried to catch the sunlight on the top window.and at the end I was very happy
Ihlara valley,Its nature was so beautiful, we walk for about 1 hour to the beginning and the end of the valley.
and one last word ,especially one thing that cought my attention there was people lived very simple, not like us watching television, using pc all the time, sending e-mails, cellular phones, traffic
they weren't living ultra busy lives as we are living today. but they were very close to nature and the things they value most ,I think they were also happy and you can see and feel this serenity while you were visiting there although they lived hundreds of years ago.
Last week we were in Tenedos , It is a small island in north of Agean. When we arrive there was heavy rain, but the next day and following days It was sunny and windy.
usually after breakfast we were making walking tours in the town . Days were sunny and the autumn lightwas beautiful we were taking hundreds of pictures of old agean style colorful houses and narrow streets.
Tenedos is famous for Its jams and cookies made there, especially I love the tomatoe jam and almond cookies. also in the island they make sherbet from flowers It is very delicious
and lastly the sunset point was beautiful. people from all ages especially young people take chairs their picnic baskets teas with them to watch sunset.
Since mychildhood we spent some part of our summer holiday in small peninsula in agean called datça .It has a beautiful nature ,
Sea beaches wheather is wonderful. Even in very hot days It is windy.It is sorrounded with high mountains and dense forrests, with countless plant types.
Every time I go there I take thousands of pictures . one afternoon when I was in smal harbour to take pictures I photograph fishing boats going to fishing.
İn datça everywhere is surrounded with olive trees ,
in agean most of the families make winter preparation from summer times, they dried the vegetables like pepper and tomatoe in the sun ,It becomes very delicious
Also Sage tea is a must
and one afternoon we went o old Datça to take photographs we saw the some of the old typical house styles of agean
and the last word you have to see it to live it.
This Summer, we made an exhibition in agean, small peninsula, named Datça. We, with my bestfriend Didem. İn our exhibiton there are photographs and acyrlic painting of flowers.
Actually I'm a hobbyist photographer and love to take pictures of especially flowers and nature. for me, as life itself photography is a continous discovery and learning, I took our exhibition photos of flowers in 2 years time.
My friend Didem also loves to paint since childhood and she is a financial consultant.
Because It was our first exhibition, we were both very excited and happy, and It feels great to express share our love for nature and flowers with the people through photography and painting.
