Skywatch Friday - Turkish sunset

Sometimes I do leave the Eastern Cape. Suzi-k and I were enjoying dinner on the roof of the Aria Kebap House, in Sultanahmet, Instanbul on a trip to Turkey last year. From our table, we were able to enjoy a 360 degree view that included the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and parts Sultanahmet (mostly roofs) and watch the the sun go down behind the Blue Mosque.


Skywatch is the place to go, if you want to enjoy many great photos and meet bloggers from all over the world
