Seeing the sunrise from a balloon is a popular tourist attraction in Cappadocia. The balloon soars over fields, villages and distinctive fairy chimneys, tall thin rock spires that are a feature in Cappadocia and from which houses are carved. In any given morning, there are perhaps over 100 balloons with tourists that are launched in the sky. This picture of a balloon soaring above a green field was taken early in the morning. It is perhaps one of the handful of times when I was able to capture one balloon by itself without other balloons clustering around it.

Location: Cappadocia, Turkey
