Stunning photos taken soaring above Turkey in a hot air balloon

Sure, hot air balloon rides are in every country, but nothing quite beats a hot air balloon ride above Cappadocia. Alfonso Salcedo took these amazing photos above the surreal landscape of Cappadocia, in Turkey’s Central Anatolia region. The area is known for its ‘unusual moon-like landscape. It’s mixture of naturally formed hills, deep canyons, valleys, and conical rock formations called ‘fairy chimneys’ that make this region so unique’. Pretty spectacular!
