There are some truly beautiful natural areas in and around Bursa. When a skilled photographer captures Bursa’s natural beauty on camera, I am both impressed and inspired. That’s why when I ran across Özgür Altınkaynak’s photography of Bursa’s nature, I asked him if I could feature some of his work here at The Best of Bursa. So in this Featured Fotoğrafı post, we hope you enjoy a few shots of Bursa’s nature compliments of Özgür Altınkaynak.
