Classic View Of Bodrum

Here is a very classic view of Bodrum on the Aegean Coast of Turkey.

Bodrum's history is said to date back to around the 7th Century BC when it was colonized by the Dorian Greeks.  It later fell to the Persians and was ruled for a time by Mausolus, who's Mausoleum later became one of the Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World.

In 1402 the Cruisader Knights arrived and used stones from the crumbling Mausoleum to build Bodrum Castle which can still be seen to the right of the photo.

By 1522 Bodrum was ruled by the Ottoman Empire.

This photo was taken using the Canon EOS 1000D - in RAW - Shutter Speed 1/500 sec - Normal Program Mode - f14 - ISO 800 - Focal Length 46 mm.
