Photographer's Note

This is a picture of the travertine pools and waterfall-like white snowy cliffs located at Pamukkale in Turkey. Pamukkale means cotton castle. (Pamuk = cotton and kale = castle). These cliffs were formed when hot calcium laiden material leaked from the earth then cooled forming these cliffs and travertine pools.

Legend has it that if you walk on these pools with your bare feet (not allowed to wear shoes any more) you will feel revived and have no pain in your bones. This is true, after a short time walking in these pools with my 81-year-old father, we both felt remarkably better.

In the background is the town of Denizli where most of the cotton used in making Turkish carpets is from.

Pamukkale is situated on the site of ancient ruins of Hierapolis I will show you some of the picture of these ruins soon.
