Photographer's Note

In the province of Cappadocia, the volcanic rock, called "tufa" has eroded into these bizarre formations that look like giant mushrooms. The locals call them "Fairy Chimneys". When settlers arrived in Cappadocia, they dug cave dwellings into the soft tufa rock, creating entire villages carved into the Fairy Chimneys. This was taken in the village of Uchisar.
