Dikmen Vadısı (3 of 4)

Back again at the park in Ankara that was my surprise find after all these years driving back and forth there. These images are not bad, but mostly taken before 08:00am on dull mornings during late January, early February. Maybe one day we’ll be there during the warmer seasons when it should be much more photogenic, with all the fountains working, the lakes all glistening in the sun, and all the flowers adding a certain vibrancy.

But still, not a bad show!

And certainly made for a pleasant change to trudging the broken up sidewalks of Ankara. It is also extraordinarily quiet there too. The valley is so deep, that hardly any of the ‘city noise’ penetrates that far down. Wonderful for a peaceful morning powerwalk 🙂

Before the sun was high enough to enter the valley, the contrast between the strength of the light in the sky overhead, compared to the darkness of the valley was quite noticeable; as seen here under one of the bridges that span the valley.

With this one lake area emptied for maintenance, you get to appreciate the vastness of the place; especially considering it’s situated in almost the centre of Ankara!
