Photographer's Note

Kuşadası is a resort town in Turkey's Aegean coast and the center of the district of the same name in Aydın Province. Its main industry is tourism and is a port of call for cruise ships.
The city stands on a bay in the Aegean with the peninsula of Guvercin Ada sticking out into the sea at one end, and the mountain of Kaz Dağı behind.
The name comes from 'kuş' (bird) and 'ada' (island) as the peninsula has the shape of a bird's head (as seen from the sea). Since Byzantine times it has been known as Ephesus Neopolis, Scala Nuova,becoming Kush-Adasi at the beginning of the 20th century. Some people from the Aegean region shorten the name to Ada.
