In this clear starry summer night the moon sets over Sagalassos, an ancient Pisidian city in southern Turkey about 100km north of Antalya. The bright star Arcturus is notable at left while Polaris, marking the north, is near the right end. Sagalassos is located on the slopes of Toros Mountains. Pictured above is the feature monument of city known as the the Fountain of Antonins. As noted by the photographer "I liked how the statues were lit from the side by the setting moon, especially the nearest one." Tunc Tezel
