The fall of Constantinople was May 29, 1453. After 557 years, this is still one of the most attractive city on this planet. Istanbul, Turkey, TODAY.

@larafarone You will like Soichi’s view then: Mt. Nemrut and Taurus mountains over a sea of clouds, 20100108, 13.34 GMT, hi-res here: ftp://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ESC_large_ISS022_ISS022-E-21096.JPG
Turkey is one of the most amazing countries to fly over (in a plane at least) the mountains are breathtaking.
Some people still live in the history. Istanbul is Istanbul today and culturel capital city of The World with Churches, Syinagogues, Mosques and others.

@CaruMurad „Real“ pollution changes the colors much more drastically. Have a look at the Mexican Gulf oil spill images here: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/event.php?id=43733
@CaruMurad That „pollution“ rather certainly is sediment (sand) washed up by strong waves, makes the water appear less deep and therefore brighter when seen from above.
