Bay in Phaselis, Turkey

There I was… Suspense between earth and water. It was a cold morning in winter, near few tourists were exploring the ruins. The beach was taken by a football team. It was the time for their morning exercise. It wasn’t only earth and water, it was here and there somewhere in time.

Phaselis was an ancient Greek and Roman city on the coast of Lycia. Its ruins are located north of the modern town Terikova in the Kemer district of Antalya Province in Turkey. It lies between the Bey Mountains and the forests of Olympus National Park, 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) south of the tourist town of Kemer and on the 57ish kilometre of the Antalya–Kumluca highway. Phaselis and other ancient towns around the shore can also be accessed from the sea by daily yacht tours.
