Door In Orange by Josh Wentz

This door was photographed in the small Central Anatolian village of Guzelyurt, by the side of the street as we walked down to Monastery Valley. The village is in the Cappadocia region of Turkey, surrounded by soft volcanic rock that over the years has been given shape both by nature and human residents. Many houses like this one featured back rooms or cellars that were literal caves, carved out of the cliffs. Monastery Valley itself is home to several houses of worship carved into the cliffs during the Middle Ages. The colors of this wall and door immediately drew my attention, and the unique shape of the doorway convinced me this was one I needed to capture.

    Wonderful shape and colors! Love the green with the contrast to the wall. Your commentary is interesting as well and makes me wish to see the ‘cave rooms’
