Yerköprü Şelalesi (Landbridge Falls)

tr.yenisehir.wikia.com
Want a refreshing reward for your trek to Alahan Monastery - besides the panoramic view and Byzantine ruins there? Head up the road a bit to the Yerköprü Şelalesi. (Land bridge falls)

I'm a huge fan of waterfalls and I am so inspired by this place. The sheets of moss dripping with white veils of water, verdant ferns and figs surrounding the swirls of crystal water below, the ancient cavern air laced with minerals.... Hmm... Imagine what's lurking in that dark cave.

Me: Wonder to worst case scenario in under two seconds. Probably a good thing - I was heading toward thesaurus rape.

But really, it's magical. Just watch the clip below and you'll see what I mean.

Now...how can I sneak a scene with this place into my manuscript?

I've waited so long to comment I forgot what I was going to say, Oh yeah!

You thought of evil and I thought of the entrance to paradise. Humm...

Happy holiday :)
