Sunrise over the unusual weathered geological formations of Cappadocia in central Turkey. The balloons are at right off frame. Might load another shot later. Still on tour in Turkey but I brought my laptop with me this time. Taken on a cliff overlooking Goreme whilst waiting for my hot air balloon to fully inflate.

What a beautiful sunrise shot! The palette of intensive colors of the sky is absolutely impressive and stunning. Eye-catching work, well done!

Wonderful fiery red sky!
Even with less light the landscape of Cappadocia looks unearthly beautiful.
Did you make a balloon ride ?
Best regards, Paul

Un superbe lever de soleil sur la Cappadoce. J'ai vécu cette expérience avant le départ en montgolfière. Un souvenir inoubliable.
Amitiés et bon week-end.

Good evening Chris,
An amazing glow of the orange light on sunrise, contrast well with the grey Cappadocia hills.
Excelent moment taken, well shown the scenery.

The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the mountains. The sunrise is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

nice the colour tints of the sunrise on the sky of Cappadocia to make the scene so beautiful as effective too.The sleepping town and the unique rocks make the image so beautiful.

Hello Chris, Long time you were absent. Nice that this time you are travelling with your laptop, so maybe you will appear on TE from time to time. Fantastic sunrise in Cappadokia and I can imagine your excitement before the balloon ride. I couldn't decide if I sholud go or not, but there was a strong wind and there was no choice . So I am a bit envious. Stunning colours.

Finally some news from your trip and a good composition of color contrast given but the special light of sunrise, in Summer my preferred hour
Still I can see some lights at the village, must be very exiting to be waiting for a balloon ride at this place
Well done, waiting for the aerial ones
Take care and enjoy your long trip
Answer your note with a long one

Content de revoir tes photos! Superbe lever de soleil, très coloré, sur la Cappadoce.

Hi Chris. This photo brings back memories of my balloon flight, although it looks as if you have been better blessed with such dramatic colours. Our sunrise was fairly insipid but the flight was nevertheless unforgettable.Great POV and contrast of the greys and the drama in the sky. Regards. Klaudio.

A ride in a hot air balloon over the scenery of Cappadocia was a thrill and treat that I shall never forget Chris. Your shot has all the mood I remember from our trip, the landscape waking up as the sun appears on the horizon, the soft colours of the rock formations and the twinkling lights of the villages. Thanks for the memory!

I guess you are on holiday again, as we haven't heard from you for a while? This landscape is indeed fascinating and beautifully captured here under that beautiful morning sun. Excellent light management and a wonderful feeling of depth.

an awesome place and what an experience to watch the sunrise here as well as take a balloon ride. Really jealous! Stunning imagery!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

You caught a very beautiful moment ! I love the contrast between the landscape in the darkness and the coming daylight. Very well done, congratulations !

A splendid combination with the weathered geological formations of Cappadocia in central Turkey in foreground.
But the pink colours of the Sunrise, makes you these picture very attractive.
Incredible that you could make these picture.
But you did very well with excellent sharpness and clarity.
Nice panorama picture with bright colours
Very well done, TFS

That is a spectacular sunrise photograph with such superb details. Great management of light. The contrast provided by the lit up sky is an absolute visual treat.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

It has been a very long time since I visited your gallery...of course you did not post for quite a while as well!
Lovely scene of the sun rising from behind the volcanic formations...great to hear that you did a balloon ride (presumably with Kappadokya balloons?)...we did with Butterfly & indeed is one of the most memorable experiences
Look fwd for some shots from the balloon
batalay (35197) 2014-06-29 13:15
Another excellent shot, this time of the stressed landscape of Cappadocia. I look forward to seeing your photos of hot air balloons and from a hot air balloon. When I visited the area three decades ago, balloon rides were still in the distant future.
Didi (56067) 2014-06-29 19:04
This is an awesome picture
Very good lights balance in the early morning
It's a good chance to enjoy this trip in a hot air balloon
I put your picture in my theme

Grande beauté de ce paysage rocheux aux levé du soleil, un beau contraste des couleurs, bien saisi au bon moment
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-07-01 3:48
I remember very well the impression this place made on me when I was sitting there in the morning waiting for the sun rise and watching the amazing shapes of the rocks slowly emerging from the darkness. Truly wonderful view and unforgettable experience. Well captured moment and especially nice light management.
Thanks for sharing

Cappadocia has become quite a hot air balloon place, hasn't it? Time to pay another visit to that place. Lovely colors over the horizon and great detail on the valley. Congratulations & TFS!
