On the Edges of Kanlidivane by Hermetic-Wings On the Edges of Kanlidivane by Hermetic-Wings
Canitelis-Neopolis-Kanlıdivane

An ancient city situated around a big sinkhole in Mersin Province, Turkey. Kanlıdivane was a part of the Olba kingdom in the ancient age. By the first century, Olba kingdom became a part of Roman Empire. Byzantine Emperor Theodosius II rebuilt the city as a Christian religious center and renamed it Neopolis. There are ruins of basilicas, cisterns, rock cut graves etc. around the sinkhole.

We call it as Kanlıdivane now...Kanlıdivane means \"bloody lunatic\". This may refer to the red color of the surrounding soil. The name may also refer to a dreadful legend according to which the criminals had been executed by throwing into the sinkhole during Roman times...
By Wikipedia.

Notu okumana çok sevindim. İnsanlar bir çok kez fotografın adına bile bakmıyorlar ki bence fotografı çekenin neyi anlatmak istediği çogunlukla buradan anlaşılır... Ben yalnızca objeyi değil, nerede olduğunu ve neyi tanımladığını da koymak istiyorum."Kanlı Divane" isminin çevirisini bulmak için çok derin araştırma yaptığım söylenemez. Ama inan ki üstünde hiç düşünmeden atılmış bir şey değil. Başka bir şey bulamadım( ya da benim İngilizce yeteneğim buna yetti) Türkçe kaynaklarda "Kanlı Divane" adının kırmızı taşlarda ki kabartmalarda divan gibi bir şeyin üstünde oturan bir grup insanın varlığına bağlayan saçma düşünceler bile vardı...Divan-divane...Ne kadar alakalı!!!...gerçekten daha uygun bir şey aklına geliyorsa, ya da biliyorsan derhal değiştirebilirim. Ufak da olsa gülümsetebildiysem ne mutlu bana...

Ayrıca desteğin için de teşekkür ederim değerli arkadaşım, sağ ol :D

Hello, my Tatlim! I know you understand English, but I would love to be able to speak your language! Why? I realize that sometimes the translator does not translate faithfully an expression, a phrase, is not exactly what I mean, but I do not know the language, patience!!! :shrug:
Fortunately the language of love is universal!!! :love:
This is another fantastic shot, very good job, my sweet! :deviation: :+favlove:

Being noticed that you are using the words very well I did not astonish with your note.
I only felt fear because of my vertigo while I was shooting photos close to the sink hole. It was early morning hours so the weather was not so hot but I wet my blue-jean because of the humidity on the atmosphere on a sunny day. And I was happy because I finally reached that place because ı was planning to go there for some time...
Have a good weekend dear Christinaki mou and hope to meet you very soon on your latest submissions my dear friend :D
