Çamlıca

On the Asian shores of the Bosphorus there lies a high pine covered bill, atop which sits a restaurant. From here one can inhale the fresh Black Sea air, and possibly obtain the best views of the sprawling metropolis of İstanbul. The best time for pictures with clarity is in the morning, but late afternoon offers glimpses on the city's skyline silhouetted against the setting sun while night fall ushers in an impressive portrait of İstanbul as a city of twinkling lights.
