Earth, our magnificent planet

For this weeks photo challenge, Jen H askes that we share our vision of our magnificent earth through our lens.

I’ve seen some remarkable places on our planet, but the images that sprung to mind right away were the ones I took in Cappadocia, a few years ago. Situated in central Anatolia,  Goreme National Park has troglodyte villages, fairy chimneys and rock hewn churches, that date back to the 4th century.

This is an unforgettable world heritage site, that more than repays the effort it takes to visit. To learn more visit the Unesco site.

      1. I agree that sometimes a guided tour is the best option. I did a camping trip through southern Africa because it would have been much more difficult to do it alone. I think we’ll be doing more such trips (not camping) in the future. I quite fancy some of the rail holidays advertised.

  1. Some great images of this mysterious landscape, Gilly – Cappadocia has long been on my list of ‘must sees’… One day!

  2. Another something fascinating. You do have the knack in finding something interesting. Those better a UNESCO treasure. It shows as one of the foundations that shaped the patterns, designs, and structures that guide us today.

  3. Thanks for taking me along to see a such an unusual and interesting site, I would have missed otherwise. Good one for Earth challenge.

I would love to hear from you . . .
