Sultanahmet Camii, Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul, Turkey The Sultanahmet Camii, or “The Blue Mosque,” completed in 1617, is visible in the middle of the image.

Other features on the water are caused by boat wakes and wave-current interaction, and the moving boats appear blurred because the ships were moving when the image was taken.
