Thank you Andreas. I hope someday you see this wonderland yourself :) Cheers, Volkan

Volkan, günaydın to Izmir.

Enjoy your holidays, have a nice day and take more nice photos from your surroundings - also 3D :-).

Selam, Andreas

Thank you Andreas, yes I am enjoying the time here :) As the weather allows more traveling plans are on the way. Selamlar and best wishes, Volkan

Oh Volkan,

I see, weather forecast for Izmir says: today (22.01.) sunny, then next weekend sunny again with slight cloudy skies, other days rainy and cloudy :-(

Best wishes for remaining vacations and a fine weather next weeks, Andreas

Andreas bad weather is nice too, I get to spend lots of time home :) Any weather is nice :) Cheers, Volkan

Hi Volkan,

maybe you're right ... home sweet home ...

As you know, I can see the present weather in Izmir, e.g. here from seaport. I'll have a look next days - hopefully this will help to become better :-).

Cheers, Andreas

Andreas, thanks for the link. But I perhaps don't have the right plug-in to see it. I look at the weather at Google Earth 4.2

Amazing - pink sky for pink flamingoes! Beautiful place, Volkan and wonderful photo to go with it!

Kind regards, Sue

Thank you Sue. I feel very lucky about my hometown being only within 25km away from this wild life protection area. As you can see in the satellite image, there is also a salt production facility in the area. Lucky, they find plenty of sea shell type of food in the warm and shallow waters of the salt concentration ponds.

Best wishes, Volkan
