Cappadocia is a place that looks from another planet. The hot air balloons complete the magical landscape, their colors merge with the exotic volcanic formations and everything is coronated by the light of the sunrise. The whole gives an extraordinary spectacle.

Location: Göreme in Cappadocia, Turkey
