Discovered some fabulous photos of Istanbul here taken by Nuri Bilge Ceylan. Looking at these images, my longing for Istanbul has come back. I must go back.
I have been to Istanbul in winters as well. It is a different place as the snow and mist transform the place into another magic kingdom.
And this is a sublime image of the Sultanahmet Square in the winter season
Once you have been to Istabul, there is a strong chance that you will be back..
