Photographer's Note

This is Devrent Valley in Cappadocia, also known as Imaginary Valley and also as Pink Valley. It does not have cave churches like the other valleys of Cappadocia, nor does it have any tombs or fairy chimney houses. Actually it was never inhabited. So what makes it so famous is the lunar landscape!

The small fairy chimneys in the valley form a lunar landscape, or moonscape, by their strange look. The valley also has many animal shaped rocks. It looks like a sculpture zoo made by nature. Some of the most important, or the easiest seen animal shapes are camel, snake, seals, and dolphin. This is a place to let your mind run free in a seemingly lunar landscape with rock formations that look like animals.

This is the famous camel rock in Devrent Valley. I tried to picture it with a twist…When I saw the reflection of this iconic rock on the tinted glass of a tourist van, how could I resist?

I also tried to be allegorical with this picture ....as we reflect back on the year which has gone by (well almost :-)) and also take this opportunity to..

Wish you all a very fine, healthy & prosperous 2014
