Photographer's Note

The Cappadocia region of Turkey is loaded with caves, monasteries, underground cities and fairy chimneys - incredible rock formations that are a result of volcanic erosion. Fairy chimneys have small holes carved into the rock and were actually pigeon houses - used for gathering and storing fertilizer.

This shot was taken from a hot air balloon - if you ever visit this area, you must include this adventure on your itinerary!
