Hey KittyKat-
What's the 'story' on your trip? The photos and locations have left me wanting a bit more. Family connections? A great travel deal? Work? or something more?

wow Brattcat!!! Did you really go there?
I'm curious about your trip as well!
Wonderful pictures!
God bless you

Great photos with a common theme. These could very well be used as post cards:-)

Thanks, Birdman. Thanks, Leia. Thanks, Christopher. Yes, I really did go to those places. My husband and I spent two glorious weeks in Turkey, exploring Istanbul, Cappadocia, and Ephesus. Before returning home we stopped in England for a few days to visit our daughter. I'm still a bit jet-lagged but so filled with happy memories.

The grass is greener in Turkey than in England. Amazing!

Great pictures, and great trip!

Yes, this is a wonderful synthesis. Tells the story of your sojourn incidently. Clever story telling.

I like all three, but especially the top one. Turkey is firming as my destination for the northern autumn of 2010.

For a change from green Vermont, let me introduce you to one of my favourite watering holes:

This is classic Australian landscapes: so so different from the three you have posted today.

I love these photos. so serene. the photos are truly excellent. Welcome back. Your trip to Turkey sounds wonderful. I was fortunate to go to Turkey once and I really loved it. Great architecture, culture, food, people, and superb mosques. Thanks for all of your comment on my site. They brighten my day. I am glad you like the Chihuly and the cactus. Sorry for the delay in responding as work has been a primary detractor for me lately. I will have a nightscape series during the next week. I went to a full moon photography class on Friday night and tried out the tips on Saturday night while there was still a full moon.
