A photographer has shared a series of images highlighting the vibrant beauty of the famous hot air balloons commonly seen in Cappadocia, Turkey.
The images were taken by Kristina Makeeva, a 29-year old photographer from Moscow, and show the balloons flying over the picturesque landscapes and valleys of the region. Known as one of the most popular places in the world for balloon rides, attracting enthusiasts and travellers year round for the experience, Cappadocia features spectacular surrealistic landscapes and breath-taking views, making it a dream destination for photographers. “When my team and I first visited Cappadocia, we were shocked by the beauty of this place. The unique rock formations and underground cities in conjunction with the balloons turn the area into a fairy tale land. Shooting there is really not difficult, it is enough to just set the focus and press the shutter button on the camera,” Kristina told Lonely Planet Travel News.
