17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Right Road

This road in southern Turkey is high up in the hills above Kalkan. A new high that is meant to connect the villages to the tourist hotspots along the cost has become a place of contemplation for locals and the way the road has been cut into the ridge allows for unbroken vistas out across the Mediterranean. Unlit and with little singage, beying the edge of the road is a 1200m drop to the ocean. It truly takes ones breath away.
