[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After two years intervall we are again on our boat at the Aegean Sea on our traditional "Blue Voyage" since yesterday morning.
It will last for next ten days and I shall post you during this period and maybe later as well, scenes from this beautiful trip on water.
Here the first one showing one of the most prefferred bays of the region.
The term "Blue Voyage" was been invented some 50 years ago by a famous Turkish poet and writer, "The fisherman of Halkarnassos" who lived in this region and created the first ever Blue Voyages in the fifties, which was than been attended by many famous poets, writers and painters.

This recent series shall follow in the next days as well. Hope you'll enjoy them.

Hello Mesut, a good shot as you start your voyage.
Very good depth of field. The blue sky and darker blue water complement the white boats. I like the white reflected upon the water in the FG, it emphasises the texture of the water. I look forward to seeing more from your trip.
Regards Jean.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Que du bleu dans des différents tons laissant une belle part de rêve et de beauté.
Le blanc des coques fait ressortir à merveille l'ensemble.

Hello Mesut,
A lovely view of the calm sea with the white sailboats scattered around the composition. The different shades of blue are very appealing and the light is lovely as well. A great summer capture.

Fine contrasts in your sea side scene. A good choice to enjoy the freedom. Well done.


Merhaba Mesut, very good view of this beautiful place with charming boats, very well composed and captured in this good and beautiful picture. An interesting image, with good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. Very good and beautiful work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy rest of the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Selamlar Mesut Bey!
Mavi yolculuğa masmavi bir kare ile başlamışsınız. Hmm, Akdeniz gözümde tütüyor... 👍👍
