Camlica Hill (Watching Europe from Asia)

Istanbul (Turkey). The Camlica Hill is one of my favorite spots to spend an entire afternoon photographing around me. The place itself is quite special, there are restaurants and tea gardens, and locals love to go there. It’s also very popular for wedding photography. But the main reason to visit Camlica Hill, at least for a tourist or a landscape photographer, is the amazing view of Istanbul: during clear sky days, it’s possible to see a large part of the city along the Bosphorus, from the so called “Second Bridge” to Sultanahmet, including the skylines of Levent and Maslak.

Reaching Camlica is easy: there are many public services, but the easiest way is catching a taxi directly at the ferryboat station in Uskudar.
