This is a view from Çamlıca Tepesi (Çamlıca Hill), in Üsküdar on the Asian side. Here we can see across the Bosphorus into the European side. This is the highest point in Istanbul, somewhere around 267 meters (references vary), which is almost 900 feet. And here is a partial view of the Asian side as seen from the other side of the hill:
This is Macar Bay, at the north end of the Bosphorus, as seen from the path leading up to Yoros Castle (Yoros Kalesi). The video in the previous post was recorded at Macar Bay.

This is at Macar Bay, in Anadolu Kavağı, on the Asian side, close to where the Bosphorus meets the Black Sea. (This is still considered Istanbul). The day was rather windy (are you sure you want to click on that link?). See the next post for a shot of the bay.
