Clouds in Cappadocia

As you will have seen from my last post our trip to Turkey didn’t start with the kind of weather normally associated with that part of the world although it must be said that in late October the conditions can be unpredictable to say the least.

The dull and rainy weather persisted during the first two or three days there but meant that I got some dramatic pictures when visiting the ‘Fairy Chimney’ rock formations of Cappadocia in the centre of the country.  These are situated near the small town of Avanos in the heart of Anatolia and it is said that the name Cappadocia can be traced via the Greek Kappadokia to the Persian Hvaspadakhim meaning ‘Land of the Fine Horses’.  It does not mean land of the fine October weather but I hope you enjoy some photos of this spectacular geological area nonetheless…

  1. We were over in Kapadokya a few years ago in late October, and darned cold it was too! The Anatolian Plateau can be pretty mean when it wants to be outside of summer. Greats pics though!
