Haliç (Golden Horn) Station of the M2 subway line is at an interesting location: It is midway on the Golden Horn Metro Bridge. It is located right over the Golden Horn, half way between Fatih (on the southern shore) and Beyoğlu (on the northern shore) districts of Istanbul. The station is accessible from both sides of the Golden Horn via pedestrian walkways adjacent to the bridge.

I got off at Haliç Station with the idea of returning to the southern shore of the Golden Horn and walking to Eminönü, from where I would take the ferry to Emirgan. The repeating patterns of the bulwarks of the station and its industrial look invited me stop and take a snapshot. Here, we are looking north towards Beyoğlu district.

Haliç İstasyonu

M2 metro hattının Haliç (Altın Boynuz) İstasyonu ilginç bir noktadadır: Haliç Metro Köprüsü'nün ortasındadır. Haliç'in tam üzerinde, Fatih (güney sahilinde) ve Beyoğlu (kuzey sahilinde) ilçelerinin tam arasında yer almaktadır. İstasyona, köprünün bitişiğinde yaya yürüyüş yolları ile Haliç'in her iki tarafından erişilebilir.

Güney sahiline dönerek Emirgan’a giden feribota bineceğim Eminönü'ne doğru yürüme fikrimi ile Haliç İstasyonu’nda indim. İstasyonun küpestelerinin tekrarlanan şekilleri ve endüstriyel görünüşü beni durdurup bir fotoğraf çekmeye davet etti. Burada kuzeye, Beyoğlu ilçesine doğru bakıyoruz.

Hello Murat

A very modern feel here with image. I always picture Istanbul with more traditional architecture. I am sure the older areas are still magnificent. Nice view running down the side of the cars.


Bonjour, cher Murat,
L'urbanisme urbain progresse de plus en plus. L'art contemporain s'adapte aux nouvelles technologies.
Cette présentation est très réussie avec ces formes géométriques et son effet de perspective.
Belle présentation.

Hello Murat

It seems daylight saving has ended somewhere in the world as I am able to critique an hour earlier. Anyway the Istanbul, Seoul, Nanjing, Budapest metros etc etc are all far superior to anything in Australia and probably large parts of the US as well except the north east around NYC. tFS!

nice view of the structure in this station. I liked the curved transparent roof and this closed corridor.

take care


Hello Murat,
Nice effect of the yellow modern arches above the platform. It allow good light to the length of the tracks, and the inclussion of the train was perfect timing.
Fine clear sight with the objects collected.
Have a nice new week,

Witaj Murat!
Interesting fragment of station.
Curious construction makes impression.
Good frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Nice day.

Hello Murat,
Unusual idea to have a Metro station in the middle of a bridge. I like the perspective and the strong geometric lines offered by the metalwork. The train adds further interest and helps put the scene in context. Optimal technical quality.

Hello Murat ,
You've used this simple place to compose an excellent picture with many lines, curves and shapes.
Well done.

Hi Murat,
Quite interesting viewpoint where a closer look reveals many surprising details. Like city buildings behind the glass and a glimpse of seawater on the lower right.

Hello Murat,
Excellent photo of this overground station with its appealing yellow structure. The composition is very well divided between the platform and the subway train on the left.

Hello Murat,
Composed in a very attractive way.
A nice colour contrast between the construction and the sky.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Murat,
Splendid perspective with great vision and lines. Nicely seen and captured. Bravo

Hi Murat
Splendid shot and viewpoint by concentrating on portion of the structures. The angle works best here, it's quite dynamic with strong lines creating a fine abstract-graphical effect. Boldness of shapes and strong colour contrast hold the strength of the shot. A keen observation nicely reflected. Congrats
Best regards
