Artist's Description

Please click on image to view this in large format

I captured this in Cappadocia, Turkey, on my hot air balloon ride above the region. This is the town of Ortahisar with it’s naturally formed rock castle at the top of the hill. To me, it resembles a giant sandcastle. It’s a fascinating place to visit, the landscape and architecture merging as one. If you look closely at this piece, you will see windows and archways cut out from the rock formation.

A place like nowhere else on this planet.
