Photographer's Note

Close to Fethiye in south west Turkey is Gemiler Island, at right. There are 5 ruined churches dating from between the 4th & 6th centuries AD, & archaeologists believe the remains of Saint Nicholas, better known as Santa Claus, were originally buried here, before they were moved to Myra. And perhaps later to Bari in Italy, although recent discoveries at Myra hint that the Italians may have missed the correct tomb of the saint. More information here:
