Weather Horrible - so some more Turkey

At the south end of Buyukcekmece Lake is the historic Mimar Sinan bridge. Here's the man himself ("mimar" = "architect") with a couple of the ever-present Jackdaws. He is most famous for designing some truly stupendous mosques, but also this bridge. Never let it be said that Turkey lacks sympathy for its rich historical heritage ... hmmm. The bridge with the magnificent Akcan cement factory.

Mimar Sinan + Jackdaws

Mimar Sinan bridge and Akcan cement factory

Area north of the bridge, these islands always worth a look

DSI dam (DSI=Turkish water authority)

Grey Herons and Shovelers this time

Some factory-loving Serin

Goosander - quite a rare beast in Turkey
