Imagine a photo trip where everything goes wrong, a trip that doesn’t seem to cut you any slack whatsoever, but you win bigtime. Well that’s a strong memory from my recent trip to Cappadocia, Turkey. Rather than a solo voyage, I took fellow ‘astronaut’ and co pilot Dan Hannabuss along for the ride, a good friend who sees the positive sides even when the chips are down.


Our mission was to shoot astrolandscapes, in one of the most remarkable places I have visited as a photographer. As well these late night explorations, the mission was also to sample the delight of balloon flight, perhaps the ultimate landscape photography accessory.
