Photographer's Note

Although I don't capture many sunsets, I think some places like Pamukkale should be photographed with such orange hue; I especially like the reflection of the light on the normally white travertines - a type of sedimentory rock made up of carbonate minerals. Only Huanglong in China and Mammoth hot springs in USA have similar travertines formation, but they're much smaller in scale.

Pamukkale means 'cotton castle' in Turkish. The Roman city of Hierapolis was built on top of the travertines hill and in this picture behind the trees lay a Byzantine castle.
