Photographer's Note

The magnificent temple of Zeus in Çavdarhisar, a small town about 50 km SW of Kütahya, Western Turkey. The temple built in the 2nd century is quite well preserved. Due to its location away from the popular tourist tracks it is not often visited by tourists. The temple was part of the ancient city of Aizanoi.

I found it accidentally in 1987, when passing by and was much surprised by the beauty of the place, enhanced by the best weather a photographer can wish on such a location, an approaching thunderstorm.

This is a scan from a colour slide taken in 1987 with an Olympus OM2. First product of an attempt to digitalize my old pictures. Some post processing in Apple iPhoto was done, amongst others to remove the blue colour slides acquire with time.
