Turkey - Istanbul - Basilica Cistern

The Basilica Cistern. This underground water collection system measures over 450 feet by over 200 feet and was built in the 400s AD. It is across from the street of Hagia Sophia.

They built a walkway around the cistern and have just enough light to see. The lighting plus the music palying make this a very romantic location….plus it is nice and cool down here during those hot Turkish summer days.

I loved the lighting down here in the Bacilica Cistern. For this shot I Left the shutter open for the maximum my camera allows (15 sec) and held it on a stone rail.
