Photographer's Note

I had the incredible experience of taking a sunrise hot-air balloon ride over Cappadocia, a region in Turkey that is covered in soft, tufa rock formations - a phenomenon that's a result of volcanic activity from a few million years ago. On land I explored these as well as rock churches and fairy chimneys (pigeon houses) that abound in this area. Like a dream! (This photo was taken while riding in a balloon.)
