Spectacular - a must see!
Pamuk means cotton in turkish.
Pamukale is one of the most extraordinary natural wonders in Turkey.
The big attraction is a vast white cliff side with scallop-shaped basins of water and "frozen" waterfalls. It looks as if it's made out of snow or cloud or balls of cotton.

The scientific explanation is that hot thermal springs pouring down the hillside deposit calcium carbonate, which solidifies as travertine.

Hello Wishnu

The colours in this shot are so clear. Was this taken from an aircarft? The POV is good but it would have been magic to see the frozen waterfalls. Tack sharp. Nice work. Thanks.

This is very interesting Wishnu. What strange formations these hot springs have made. Good composition and colours and details. Well done.

A breath-taking view! The water is so serene, with a very delicate blue color. This place is a real miracle of nature. I'm curious about the hight of these waterfalls. Thanks for this shot.

Wow, it looks nice, I dont remember seeing it like that when i was there about 15years ago. I really enjoyed the visit and it is well worth it. This brings back some memories.
