Morning Glory

by Federico Senesi

Air hot baloon 's trip in Cappadocia.Cappadocia is a picture drawn on the earth by nature, it is a poem. Cappadocia, which is situated within the triangle of Nevsehir, Aksaray and Kayseri is bounded by Erciyes with a height of 3,916 m (12,848 ft) in the east and by Hasandag, a volcanic mountain of 3,253 m (10,673 ft) high in the south. The tough rocks, formed by the lava spurted by these two mountains during geological times, had kept on taking constantly changing shapes with kind effects during the course of time, and the wonders of the world of today were created.
Equipment: Canon 7D

I love the way the balloons are framed against the stark and unusual background. The image is nearly as light and airy (and colorful) as the balloons themselves. Thanks for sharing!

Cappadocia is an amazing area of Turkey
I was fortunate to have been in the Peace Corps in SW Turkey
and saw a lot of the country and ME actually during my stay.
I still have very fond memories of my time there.
This just bring it all back.
