Photographer's Note

Another shot of the Kapikiri Island in Bafa Lake.
The lake is located in the south of the Meander plain and faces the ancient Mount Latmos (Besparmak Mountains). Originally it was a gulf in the sea blocked up by the alluvium of the Meander River. The old village of Kapikiri, located on the north-eastern shore of the lake, mingles with the ruins of Heracleia by Latmos. The ancient city was a port built by the Ionians at the bottom of the Gulf of Latmos. The island is called Kapikiri Island. During the 7th century AD, certain hermits traveled from the Sinai and built chapels and monasteries along the shores of the Bafa Lake and on its tiny islands. Lake Bafa is spread over a large area between Didim and Milas.
