[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For millions of years, the mighty volcanoes of the Central Anatolian Plateau erupted and spewed their contents across the land that would become a cradle of civilization. The alien landscape still exists unlike anything else I have ever seen.

In this image, we see the cone shapes starting to erode out of the mountain. Many of these are free standing elsewhere and have been carved out for at least the last 3000 years for shelter, churches and pigeon homes.

Nice, compressed view. Good light with nice shadows make this one rather attractive. Very well done. Regards,

Wow you have strayed far since last summer!

Great fore, mid and background detail here with lots to look at all round.


Hello Dan!
Very nice picture presenting amazing rocky formation :)
DOF and POV are really good, I also like warm colours and shadows on some parts of stones.
TFS and best greetings,
