Continuing on our Mediterranean cruise, our next place to visit was the ancient ruins of the biblical city of Ephesus. Selcuk is the modern city which has grown up around the ancient city of Ephesus. The port of call was Izmir, Turkey which is located on the western shore of Turkey. From Izmir, it was about an hour drive to the site of Ephesus. Izmir is the modern city which in biblical times was known as Smyrna.


The camera equipment used on this trip was the Canon 40D dSLR and Canon G12. Lenses consisted of a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, and for long distance shots, Canon 100-400mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM telephoto.
I welcome comments and questions.
