On a foggy May morning, three hot air balloons float over the dreamy landscape of Cappadocia. Silhouetted fairy chimneys make a theater stage - like background. Taken from another hot air balloon, from 50 meters of altitude.
Cappadocia is known around the world as one of the best places to fly with hot air balloons. The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.

Resim koymakla kalmıyorsun bir de özel reklamını yaptırıyorsun !
Ben TE sayfasını açtığımda tepede bir "Kapadokya Tur"u reklamı çıkoyor. Helal olsun sana, nasıl ayarladınsa.
Bu siyah beyaz Kapadokya da çok keyifli.
İyi bir hafta sonu, selam ve sevgiler

What an amazing picture ; to the right one (wrongly) identify a sea with high waves ; in fact probably some low clouds instead... and to the left this quiet air with the balloons !
A good idea to convert in black and white !

A marvellous photo, Deniz.
Because of the fog it looks a little like a painting. It's the first photo I've seen of Cappadocia that doesn't focus in on the strange rocky formations, but just shows them in hazy silhouette. You timed this well in order to place the three balloons very well in the well proportioned composition. A great result.

I've never had a chance to see a display of balloons, it's something I'm excited.
Very good composition in B / W, although I prefer the photos of the balloons in color.
