Sunset Over Fethiye Bay: A Photo

Our previous Fethiye photo was Fethiye Harbour At Night – and that was two weeks ago! Last Friday, we were meeting with friends and waiting for the arrival of Wigan to Fethiye cyclist, Tom Kelly. That led to no post on the Friday but at least we got the added bonus of watching Ölüdenizli Yarenler. On occasions like this, we’ve posted the Friday photo on a Saturday instead – but we figured, and we’re sure you’ll agree, the Tom Kelly post deserved to override the Fethiye photo on this occasion.

And that brings us onto this week. Yesterday / last night was all about seeing off some friends who were flying back to the UK from Turkey – and so, once again, our Friday photo is a Saturday photo. But that’s summer life in Fethiye for you – daily routine suddenly disappears in a puff of smoke and we’ll no doubt bumble our way through to the end of October in a haze of hellos, goodbyes and trips to and from Dalaman Airport.

Fethiye Sunset

Is this the end of the unsettled weather?

And here’s today’s Fethiye photo, taken last week. It was a complete mix of weather we had through May. The summer heat seems to be arriving later and later each year (while the pleasant autumn temperatures now lasts long into December) and so May 2012 literally blew hot and cold.

But as we’ve said in the past, changeable weather always makes for a better sunset. Despite taking hundreds of photos of the Fethiye sunset from this very spot, last week’s tempted me to reach for my camera once again. It’s the clouds that do it.

(If you are reading this and are about to come to the Fethiye area for your summer holiday, you’ll be pleased to know that June has heralded the start of summer. Temperatures are on the up and the flip flops are out!)
