White In The Air / Ankara-Turkey


Contributor IlkerCagatayAsik brings us this amazing wintertime aerial view of Ankara, the great Turkish capital city.  Located in the middle of the country in the Central Anatolia region, it's now the country's second-largest city after Istanbul.  Ankara's remarkable growth parallels the rise of modern Turkey; when Ankara became the center of the Turkish Nationalist movement in 1920, Ankara had a population of less than 50k.  Fast-forward a century, and it's the center of a metropolitan area of over 5 million!
