Project Description

Cappadocia Dreaming

Spring tour to Cappadocia exterrestrial landscapes

Tour to the air baloons and stone pyramids is an unforgettable adventure for any photographer. We will live in the heart of the valley, surrounded by the ancient pyramids, which are still habitant by the locals, living there since 6th century BC.

Cappadocia,  covered by ancient magic, “the land of beautifull horses”, as translated from Persian. There was a volcano 4000 years ago and nature created abstract rocky forms (pyramids, mushrooms, different rocky sculptures) from the clinker, where local people made underground cities with houses, churches, meditation rooms and other ritual constructions. Today Cappadocia is a complex of open-air museums, which has huge cultural influence and is one of the UNESCO objects.

It goes without saying, that one of the key activities there is a flight with hot air baloon, hundreds of which are covering sky every morning.  We will shoot this breathtaking view from the land and flying in the sky.
