Built to last

When I first saw a travel programme about Cappadocia I thought how surreal it looked and I really wanted to see it for myself. A few years later I found my way there and it didn’t disappoint, it looked totally out of this world.

with it’s landscape of bizarre rock formations,

cave dwellings, both ancient,

and still in use. In fact you can even stay in some of them, fancy a week as a troglodyte?

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.
