Photographer's Note

This is almost as far east in Turkey as you can go. Beyond the bg mountains is Iran. Apparently the Iranian border guards are trigger happy on occasion and shoot at any one that even looks like they might be trying to cross over. Not so much at this particular spot but along the border road linking this area to Van City to the south. At left is the Ishak Pasa Palace dating from 1784. It offers a nice view over the provincial town of Doğubayazıt. At right is the Ahmed-iHani Türbesi / tomb, mosque & museum. A closer view here:
