The view encompases the heart of the Bosporus with great clarity: the lighting is excellent. From the Sea of Marmara to well past the first bridge you can pick out the major points of interest on the European side. The Old City, the entrance to the Golden Horn, Para, the football stadium and the docks are all right there. And the spread of the urban sprawl on the Asian side is very impressive. This body of water is the spiritual center of Istanbul. Over half a million people cross it daily. And oh yeah, there's the wing of an airplane in the picture!
