Bird’s Eye View of the Golden Horn

The imposing silhouette of the Süleymaniye Mosque (the Mosque of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent) dominates the southern shore of the Golden Hornin Istanbul, but it’s easily transcended by this soaring seagull.

In the lower left part of the scene is the New Mosque (Yeni Cami) in Eminönü, and in the lower right—just barely visible—is the Rüstem Pasha Mosque (with a sheen of sunlight on the left side of its dome.

Moored along the quai are several Istanbul ferries, ready to steam you off to other parts of the city, or up the Bosphorus.
