Photographer's Note

The Cine River is a tributary of the Büyük Menderes River of the Aegean region. It rises on the Anatolian plateau southwest of Mugla province and flows northwestwards through a narrow valley and canyon. It then expands into a broader, flat-bottomed valley and from here the slow moving river winds across the Aegean plains and empties into the Büyük Menderes River near Aydin.

This bridge you see here is more than a couple of hundred years old and over the "cine river" which is called as "incekemer bridge" . "Ince-kemer" literally means "slender-arch". It's been constructed on the natural rocks and the rock forms of the area/walley worth to see.

Unfortunately, after the completion of a local dam project, not only this historical bridge but also a couple of natural and historical wealths of the country will be burried in the waters.

I HAVE ALSO POSTED A WS VERSION WHICH SHOWS HEIGHT FROM THE ROCK LEVEL.
