Photographer's Note

A picturepack with two captures towards the Black Sea from almost thesame pov. Taken from the main road of Sile leading towards the shopping street of Sile.

Sile has long sandy beaches and it gets very popular especially during the summer time.
Its population is around 35thousand but it triples during the holiday season, even up to 10 times during the summer weekends.
During the spring and on nice autumn weekends, people from Istanbul comes to Sile to taste the fish in one of the restaurants around the fishermens' harbour or to stroll in its narrow streets.
The town has the biggest lighthouse of Turkey which is a small restaurant today overlooking the Blacksea, it also became the symbol of Sile.
Just above the harbor, there are ruins of a Genoese fortress on the steep rocks which was also used during the Ottoman period.
