All that glitters A leather turtle baby finding it's way to to sea. It will enter the sea for 25 years and then get back to this place to lay eggs it self... if it makes it... Leatherback sea turtles are an endangerous specie and are the biggest sea turtles alife messuring up to 2.5 meters and 700 kg. Here in Cerali Turkey a WWF programm started for many years ago to protect the turtle eggs and gardians check the eggs regulary. All nests are protected and marked on the beach. It is not allowed to be on the beach at night, so the mother turtles can lay their eggs in piece. Cerali is one of the only villages on the turkish riviera who has no mass tourisme and have no buildings higher then 2 stocks, it is a beautifull place to be. more http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leatherback_sea_turtle (as you can see at wiki cirali is missing on the map) ...

street photography photobook The printing company insisted on sending a real test print before they would deliver the book, for they said they used the wrong printing machine for the one test print we made....It does look a tiny bit different that is true but after comparing this print with the test book both prints have positives and negatives. I presume they made a digital print for our one copy and the copy you are now looking at is a real offset print which is just a bit different. The offset print looks a bit more Matte as the digital, some details are less detailed in the offset but on the other hand some details are worse in the digital print. Comparing the photos from the offset with the screenphotos I think the offset is the better way to go it I looks more realistic. The print origianally should have been finished on monday but for I was on a holiday and couldnt see and confirm this real test print I presume the book wont be done printing tomorrow... I will call the printing company on this monday and talk with them to speed up the order we all made.... I presume we will have at least a weeks delay.... ...

The Chimera The Chimera is depicted as a three-formed beast; a lion in front, a python in its hinder parts, goatlike in the middle. Certain writers on natural history say it isn't an animal, but a mountain in Cilicia, which in some places feeds lions and goats, in some burns, in some is full of snakes. Bellerophon made this habitable, whence he is said to have "killed Chimaera". Mount Chimaera From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Chimaera Volcanic tract near Yanartaş. Some say this geothermically active region was the inspiration for the myth of the Chimera. Mount Chimaera was a place or places in ancient Lycia, notable for volcanic phenomena and said by some ancient sources to be the origin of the myth of the Chimera. Ctesias is the oldest traceable author to offer this euhemerizing theory. This was the citation given by Pliny the Elder, who in his second book of Historia Naturalis identified the Chimaera with the permanent gas vents in Mount Chimera, in the country of the ancient Lycian city of Phaselis, which he described as being "on fire", adding that it "...indeed burned with a flame that does not die by day or night". Pliny was quoted by Photius and Agricola, although the exact location of the mountain described by Strabo is still open to debate. Strabo and Pliny are the only surviving ancient sources who would be expected to discuss a Lycian toponym, but the placename is also attested by Isidore of Seville and Servius, the commentator on the Aeneid. Strabo held the Chimaera to be a ravine on a different mountain in Lycia, placing it unhesitatingly in the vicinity of the Cragus Mountains, the southern part of the present Babadağ, some 75 km due west as the crow flies, and Isidore quotes writers on natural history (see below) that Mount Chimaera was on fire here, had lions and goats there, and was full of snakes over there. Servius goes so far as to arrange these with the lions on the peak of the mountain, pastures full of goats in the middle, and serpents all about the base, thus imitating Homer's description of the monster. The site was identified by Sir Francis Beaufort in 1811, as the modern Turkish Yanar or Yanartaş, which was described by T.A.B.Spratt in his Travels in Lycia, Milyas, and the Cibyratis, in company with the late Rev. E. T. Daniell. The discussion on the connection between the myth and the exact location of Mount Chimera was started by Forbiger in 1844, and the George E. Bean was of the opinion that the name was allochtonous and could have been transferred here from its original location further west, as cited by Strabo, owing to the presence of the same phenomenon and the fires. ...
