Photographer's Note

This is the light house located on the north eastern corner of the Bosphorus in a little fishing town called Rumeli feneri which is named after the light house. The height of the light house is 30 meters and the visibility is about 18 nautical miles. It is also the only light house with a tomb in it. Saltık Baba tomb. They have built the light house couple of times and all ended up with failure. And then they have decided to build the light house surrounding the tomb instead of building on top of it and that has worked.
