Fashion should be fun and with my photography I love to create those fun moments.

Nemrut Dagi contains a 9 x 5 km caldera partially filled on its western side by a caldera lake. Post-caldera volcanism, of basaltic to rhyolitic composition, initially occurred along the caldera rim and floor. Pyroclastic flows and the emission of glassy obsidian lava flows accompanied construction of lava domes within the caldera; later activity formed a series of cinder cones and lava domes erupted along N-S-trending fissures on the northern flank. The most recent activity has been concentrated along a NNW-trending fissure cutting the eastern caldera floor and extending beyond the north caldera rim; nearly two dozen cinder cones and lava domes were constructed on the caldera floor. Ash layers in Lake Van document numerous Holocene eruptions, and an historical eruption in 1441 AD from a north-flank fissure involved compositionally bimodal lava flow Dam near Batman ? Earthquake territory, so many recorded earthquakes in this region of East Turkey Erzincan valley Erzincan Airport yes, there is a town called Batman in Turkey Amasra on the black sea Bartin Port not alone heading over the black sea  slowly leaving Turkey, to the far right is Istanbul an hour or so later, Austria looking towards the mountain at the back of Trieste Germany Belgium going down cloudy Belgium Landed Flightracker
