The Tranquil End Of Kuşadası

Kuşadası, on the Aegean Coast of Turkey is a bustling holiday destination during the summer months. The area to the side of the state run hospital, which is currently being expanded, provides you with one of the few areas where you can view Kuşadası bay with some greenery in the shot.

As you can see this is a fairly modern, residential, area of town but with the greenery in the foreground and Pigeon Island in the background, it still has some charm.

Where every you go in this area, and indeed most of Turkey, there will always be olive trees, to provide shade for you , and framing for your shots.

You can also get a feel for what the coast line would have once looked like before being built up with the rocks and shrubbery going right down to the waters edge.

The two hotels you can see in the centre of the shot are (in cream and beige) the Charisma and (in blue) the Kismet.

Another couple of prominent, if distant, objects in these shots, is the cruise terminal located at the opposite end of the seafront, complete today with a cruise ship and the marina, located just behind the two hotels.

This area is very popular with locals, who come and park up here to get away from the centre for a short while, and has a recently modernised cafe and small children's park area, shame about the positioning of the pine tree in this shot!

Shades of blue and green, always lovely colours to have in your summer shots.
