Photographer's Note

Kuzey Ege'nin enfes iklimi ve Çanakkale Boğazı, Saros Körfezi ile başlayan, Assos ve Behramkale ile devam eden, Ayvalık ve Cunda Adasına kadar uzanan harika coğrafyası içinde yer alan Bozcaada... Ev yapımı tadına doyulmaz şarapları, kalamar ve ahtapotları, kendine has leziz ev turşuları... Kısa mesafede ulaşılabilecek en yakın cennetlerden biri... özellikle bağ bozumu zamanı, buz gibi denizi ve sıcak ada halkı...
harika bir erken sabahta feribot iskelesinde çektim fotoğrafı...

Bozcaada is a small Turkish island located about 12 miles (19 km) off the western coast of Turkey just south of the Dardanelles (a narrow strait in northwestern Turkey connecting the Aegean Sea with the Marmara Sea). The island’s ancient name was Tenedos, and its strategic location in the Aegean Sea at the entrance of the Dardanelles Straits was ideal to guard the city of Troy just to the north. The island’s physical beauty is found on its southern beaches with crystal clear water, its rocky northern coast, and its vineyards in the interior. Bozcaada was once very famous for viniculture; however in recent years the vineyards have fallen upon hard time. Nonetheless there are still folks that take pride in the grapes of Bozcaada and are struggling to keep the tradition alive.
