The best way to explore the unique landscape in Cappadocia in Turkey is by riding the Hot Air balloon at Sunrise, when the winds are much calmer. Breath taking views of Chimney fairies, Rose valley, Beautiful valleys filled with cave homes and pigeon houses is a sight not to be missed. Every morning at break of dawn, about 100+ hot air balloons soar high up in the air taking tours around the multiple valleys in the Goreme/Nevsehir regions of Cappadocia. This is a shot I took during one of my balloon rides over the Goreme region. The light was just about perfect.
