Photographer's Note

This is the 40th photograph from my trip to Turkey.

This trekking/holidays lasted 3 weeks and its route includes the most famous and interesting places in Turkey:

Istanbul - Izmir - Selcuk - Efez - Dilek National Park - Pammukale - Fethiye - Saklikent Gorge - Olu Deniz - Antalya - Termessos - KAPADOKYA - Istanbul.

The last stop of our trip was Cappadokya and its amazing valleys and rock forms which are world famous atractions.

We arrived to Goreme at 4.00am after quite long trip from Antalya. However by the way we already noticed amazing rocky formations we decided to have a quick look into the nearest valley. Luckily we managed to get there a few minutes before sunrise so I had enough time to set up the camera on the tripod and find some interesting details to use them as a foreground. The biggest obstacle was to balance the exposure as the October sun is still very bright and the valley was in shadows of the twilight. So after a several attempts the results were better and better while the valley was getting lit by morning sunshine.

The view was incredible specially when loads of ballons started appearing on the horizon. In the nearest future I will share some photos taken that morning and during another 2 days spent in Cappadokya.

Taken with 10d and wide angle lens. Hope you like it!
