Turkey, Istanbul, Sirkeci District to the Asian side of Istanbul, October 5, 2012
A cargo ship is visible in the distance from a ferry, travelling across the Bosphorus strait from the European side to the Asian side of Istanbul at sundown. The deep orange sky makes the water shine yellow.   
The Bosphorus, also referred to as the Istanbul Strait, forms the boundary between the European and the Asian sides of Turkey. At 32 kilometers (20 miles) long, the Bosphorus joins the Sea of Marmara with the Black Sea in Istanbul. Two suspension bridges cross over the Bosphorus: the Bosphorus Bridge, completed in 1973, and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, completed in 1988.
