Red fishing boat on the Bosphorus Strait

This is one of my favorite pictures, which I took from the Asian side of the Bosphorous Strait in Turkey:

You can see the spires of mosques in the background. And I can only assume the strangely attached smaller boat that it’s pulling is evidence that the Bosphorus and the Black Sea don’t have the rough seas and huge swells you’d find in the Mediterranean Sea or on the ocean – but naturally I never got the chance to ask the Captain.
