About Izmir:
İzmir is a large metropolis in the western extremity of Anatolia and the third most populous city in Turkey,
after Istanbul and Ankara. İzmir’s metropolitan area extends along the outlying waters of the Gulf of İzmir
and inland to the north across Gediz River’s delta, to the east along an alluvial plain created by several small streams
and to a slightly more rugged terrain in the south.

İzmir has almost 4,000 years of recorded urban history and possibly even longer as an advanced human settlement.
Lying on an advantageous location at the head of a gulf running down in a deep indentation midway on the western Anatolian coast,
the city has been one of the principal mercantile cities of the Mediterranean Sea for much of its history.

And for me, Izmir is the most beautiful City in turkey.

This time-lapse short film is a personal project to share the beauty of nature.
It is just a small part of Izmir
It took me about 2 Month and over 60.000 RAW Shots.

Enjoy the video and please share it if you like!
