It's Friday again so it's time for another Fethiye photo. Previously, the photos have concentrated on the January winter sunshine, particularly the photo of Fethiye harbour that we showed a couple of weeks back.
However, this week has been very wet so it seems only fitting that today's photo displays that. I took this yesterday morning after restless sleep caused by storms, reminiscent of the Fethiye storms that caused the damage in Çalış last year. Throughout Wednesday night, continuous, angry rumbles of thunder were only interrupted by huge booms of thunder directly above us and high winds and rain battered the house.
Heavy skies over FethiyeThis is the calm after the storm. It's quite common for tankers and cargo ships to come into Fethiye bay and, while they're considered an eyesore by some, I think there's a certain beauty and serenity about them as they rest on the dead-calm, morning waters of the bay. Yesterday morning, a couple of tankers were in Fethiye bay, presumably to shelter from the rough, Mediterranean seas. This was one of them. It had been here for three days.
Today is sunny and clear and the vessels are now gone. Hopefully, we'll now get some respite from the stormy weather of this last week so those affected can begin their clean-up and repair any damage caused. Here's to a sunny weekend!
