Photographer's Note

Kuşadası is a resort town in the province of Aydın on the Aegean coast of Turkey, 90 km south of İzmir, and 71 km from the inland provincial capital of Aydın.

Kuşadası is near the ancient city of Ephesus and to other places of interest including Miletos, Didim and Pamukkale, and a short distance across from Kuşadası lays the island of Samos.

The city stands on a bay in the Aegean with the peninsula of Guvercin Ada sticking out into the sea at one end, and the mountain of Kaz Dağı behind.

The name comes from 'kuş' (bird) and 'ada' (island) as the peninsula has the shape of a bird's head (as seen from the sea). Since Byzantine times it has been known as Ephesus Neopolis, Scala Nuova, becoming Kush-Adasi at the beginning of the 20th century. Some people from the Aegean region shorten the name to Ada.

And this panoramic shot was taken there this summer, by my sis.

I hope you enjoy it.
Best regards,
