Balloons Over Cappadocia
The full set of photographs from the amazing balloon flight over Cappadocia, central Turkey. A nervous run up to the day – would the wind die down sufficiently for the flight to go ahead? Would the cloud cover lessen to a least give us a view? Worries unfounded as it transpired; our flight (plus innumerable more) went ahead. The views over the wild, erosion sculptured landscape of Cappadocia were truly breath-taking. So much so that one wondered if the resulting photographs would do it justice.
Not the most ideal of locations to take photos from. Four people crammed rather tightly in each corner of the balloons basket with little room to swivel, let alone change a lens. Newly equipped with a Canon GPS unit stuck incongruously atop the 7D, height info was recorded in addition to the actual position.
Balloons Over Cappadocia – The flight forming part of a post Wine Conference trip to view the vineyards of this remote vine growing region. The conference itself was the Digital Wine Communicators Conference (Also known as European Wine Bloggers Conference) held in Izmir.
