Red & Rose valley, Cappadocia, Turkey

August 3, 2018

Turkey is home to a wide variety of stunning landscapes and geographical wonders. This summer, the country sparked our wanderlust with one of its natural wonders: the dreamy Red & Rose valley of Cappadocia. 


Imagine a landscape covered under a blanket of hundreds of soft-hued rock formations, carved out by nature in the most impossible shapes. Honeycombed hills are situated playfully juxtaposed fairy chimneys, creating a surreal sight. 

Created in the early miocene era (10 million years ago), the pastel-toned and organic shaped valleys were sculpted by the eruptions of volcanoes. They were formed by erosion of the tufa layer, as a result of wind and flood water running down the slopes of the valleys. 

 

While the erosion continues reshaping the valleys in slow-motion today, we were happy to capture the current shapes and colouring on film.
