18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Sunrise in Cappadocia

I took a balloon trip in Cappadocia to meet the sunrise in November 2020. As the climate is sharply continental in this part of the country when we arrived to a place to depart at 6am it was extremely chilly like zero degree. We found our placed inside the balloon and were freezing until the sun appeared and revealed all the beauty of the surroundings. It was one of the most magical moments in my life.
