With the passing of time, the Melendiz River has carved a steep sided gorge on its way toward the marshes of Toz Golu (Salt Lake) leaving behind expanses of flat, basalt topped plateaus that characterize this region. Further erosion of the basalt layer expresses itself in the surreal landscape of Cappadocia but in the Ihlara Valley (Peristrema), rock cones are only seen near Yaprakhisar and Selime.
Cappadocia IS amazing and I confess that capturing the sheer grandeur of this area proved difficult. While the end result is pleasing, what I captured with the camera is not necessarily how I my eye saw it. I did not do Cappadocia justice.
