"Polluted Skies - Knowing Air from Water" Istanbul Favorite Tip by mrclay2000

Istanbul General: 533 reviews and 651 photos

  tug in a pinkish haze, Sea of Marmara
by mrclay2000

Favorite thing: When the weather is overcast or there is a fogbank over the harbor, the polluted skies of Istanbul tend to turn a lurid pink or lavendar. Except for the common hulls plying through the waves, it is often hard to tell the sky from the sea.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
