Gulf of Gökova
I know the scene looks a bit crazy. Can anyone guess what is going on?

It looks like the preparation of sales of toy-lamas to me but I am sure that in the end you will share something very unexpected with us...!

Perhaps some kind of art exhibition? Strange but also quite interesting!

Hilda said...

Looks like some kind of art installation. Or even performance art, if that human figure is real and is part of it. You will tell us tomorrow, right?

I like this shot a lot. I am thinking that it has to be art of some kind, but it could be some sort of religious festival that is beyond my experience!

Thanks so much to all for taking time to comment and for your Your marvelous approaches.

Let me tell you the story about this image...

On the extremely delightful mountain road connecting Gökova to Mugla, heading towards Akyaka through the Sakar Passage at a height of 600 meters you have an aerial view of the Gulf of Gökova.

The magnificent view presented by the valley and the Gulf of Gökova is really breathtaking.

There are places on the winding road where one can park and take time to view the scenery. On these places there are many sellers of stuffed animals & toys.

By the way, those were toy sheeps, not lamas. :))

Isadora, thanks for your creative approaches. :) The answer is in my previous comment (two blocks above your comment).
