I used to think that the ultimate photographic accessory was a top of the range, ebony black Land Rover Defender like my good friend Justin’s, but after my recent excursions in Cappadocia, I have to inform you my choice has now changed.

One of the brilliant experiences I had when photographing an often complicated landscape was the chance to shoot a different style of landscapes altogether – to shoot the earth from the air. On the second day, I took my very first balloon ride, sharing a huge basket with seven excited tourists, together on a silent trip towards the clouds and into photographic heaven…. Well that’s what you would think, but it didn’t quite go to plan.
