Now this may not be the best combination of challenges that I have attempted, but it works for me!
Over at the WordPress Daily Post we are asked to show images that say Endurance, and Ailsa of ‘Where’s my Backpack?’ has us illustrating Strong. Well, like a number of others, I have gone the ancient ruin route.
My images show Lycian tombs in the cliffs above the town of Fethiye, South West Turkey. As they were built around 350BC, I would say they are a great illustration of Endurance. And to have lasted this long, they certainly would have to be solid and Strong!
The first image was taken from a distance, around midday.
This next shot of the upper part of the same tomb was taken on another day, in the late afternoon, when there was a lovely golden light:
These are great photos …. for both challenges. Marvelous.
Many thanks, Cee… I had a most enjoyable trio to Turkey earlier this year, got a few interesting shots.
Works for me…

Beautiful images and perfect for the prompt! Love that second one with the gorgeous light!
Love the images Sue – I think ideal for the challenge with the endurane over time 🙂
Thanks! Much appreciated 🙂
…and works for me too 🙂
Thanks Robin 🙂
I’ve been up there, Sue, but quite a lot of years ago. Gulet sailing on honeymoon 🙂
Isn’t it great how different bloggers photos can remind us of past events….as long as they were happy times, I guess 🙂
Definitely works for your challenges.
Thanks for sharing these… Such amazing places and feats of workmanship and ancient engineering!
Thanks, Robyn. Seeing these places really gives you pause as to how the ancients managed such awesome feats of craftsmanship and engineering ….. 🙂
Definitely Sue… Truly amazing.

Thanks, Cybele…it certainly was an amazing place, I am always so struck by the capabilities of those ancient people….
Wonderful photos, Sue. Did you stay in Fethiye?
We were nearby, and came into Fethiye a number of times as well as seeing some other places.
