Autumn Forest at Seven Lakes

Autumn Forest at Seven Lakes Region, Bolu, Turkey

The nature begins to change in Autumn, always in perfection. While quietly preparing to winter, the chirping of the spring, merry laughter of the birds, and sounds of streams full of enthusiasm are reduced gradually; leaving the place to the sound of the wind and rain, again. Green trees take on different colors according to their types in every fall. Each color has a thousand and one tones and shades. Millions of trees are preparing for winter in Seven Lakes region, in another poetry, in another autumn.


The green pine trees, located between the yellow, brown, red, orange trees as though someone spilled paint from the Heavens. Which painter, can paint the nature in that wonderful colors, or even transfer that wonderful landscape on canvas! My feelings are mixed in confusion: admiration, joy, surprise, happiness! ...

Lost among millions of trees and leaves in this perfection.
The time is hiding somewhere.
Your search in vain.
For a while,
You will not find the time ...
Everything lives in its own time,
A crackling, the sound of a bird, a whisper of wind, falling leaves,
and the voice of your own pace.
Just made, and lost in their own time ...

Life inside Turkish nomad tent home: Yurt

A yurt is a portable, bent wood-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by Turkic nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. The structure comprises a crown or compression wheel (tüýnük) usually steam bent, supported by roof ribs which are bent down at the end where they meet the lattice wall (again steam bent). The top of the wall is prevented from spreading by means of a tension band which opposes the force of the roof ribs. The structure is usually covered by layers of fabric and sheeps-wool felt for insulation and weatherproofing.

The word "yurt" comes originally from a Turkic word referring to the imprint left in the ground by a moved yurt, and by extension, sometimes a person's homeland, kinsmen, or feudal appanage. The term came to be used in reference to the physical tent-like dwellings only in other languages. In modern Turkish the word "yurt" is used as the synonym of homeland.
