Massive Fjord Panoramic Images, a set on Flickr.

While travelling through Norway’s Fjords, on the Hurtigruten in 2011, I made massive panoramic images. Most were photographed using a Carl Zeiss wideangle lens and stitched using Hugin. I will be exhibiting wall size prints in London.These are all published at 25% of full resolution and are available for any purpose, contact me if you would like to license them.

Livissi, now known as Kayaköy, was an important Greek village in western Lycia, situated just a few miles south of Fethiye in Turkey. Shown on maps from the 17th & 18th Centuries, the village was eventually abandoned at the end of the 1919-1922 Greco -Turkish War as part of a population exchange agreement. The village was intended to be repopulated by Turkish citizens who would relocate from Greece, this didn’t happen and in 1957 an earthquake damaged most of the remaining buildings. Today Kayaköy is a tourist attraction and museum, signposted as a ghost village. It also is the unofficial start point of the Lycian Way, an ancient walkway along the coast of Turkey, the official start of the marked trail being a few miles further south in Ölüdeniz.

World’s Oldest Lighthouse 36.263264, 29.308144

World's Oldest Lighthouse

The oldest known existing lighthouse in the world. Built circa 56 A.D. in the Roman province of Lycia, during the reign of Nero. Rediscovered in 2005 under the sand during excavations uncovering the ancient city of Patara, the lighthouse is thought to have been destroyed by a minor tsunami. Reconstruction is underway as part of the research and restoration of the city.

Patara is known as the birth place of Santa Claus and also home to the congress building, now restored, of the Lycian League, who’s republican government influenced the American Constitution during the formation of the United States. There I am, just before the archeological zone closing time, 8th October 2012.
