There’s a beautiful artificial lake inside the Istanbul Technical University (ITU), where our office is. Today, after lunch, my colleagues and I went there and walked around the lake. I took some photos.

Many sea turtles, seagulls, geese, large fish, ducks, and cormorants live inside and around the lake. The lake supports a rich array of wildlife.

The Maslak skyline. Rams Beyond Istanbul (formerly known as the Rams Tower and the Diamond of İstanbul) is on the horizon. The skyscraper has been under construction since 2003. The Hilton Hotel (the pinkish building) can be seen on the left of that building.
