This is the second of a few pieces I’ll be uploading that were captured from a hot air balloon, drifting over Cappadocia, Turkey.
A ride in one of these balloons has been on my ‘things to do before I die’ list for a long time. I really can’t think of a better place to experience it than Cappadocia. The volcanic land forms are unique and almost alien to this planet. Staying here for a few days was one of the many highlights of my recent trip to Europe.
Drifting overland at dawn, we saw what looked like 100 other balloons taking off in the distance and crossed paths with them over the flights duration.

These two images shown below, were shot at different times during the flight. I blended them with textures from www.deviantart.com – free use stock, as well as some of my own. More balloons added and endless manipulating all completed in Photoshop CS4.
