Wonderful foliage in that final image. The tulips pop out in Istanbu. But ehe image from cappadocia is amazing! What erosion! But are the houses real, They are only as big as the trees on the ridge. An horrific image of erosion.

Great idea posting different places that you visited!
The first picture is amazing! Do they really live there?
Fabulous post!

These are all so wonderful. That first shot is scary. You might wake up in the middle of the night, stumble around, fall out of a window and down the cliff!

Fascinating!

It's wow! I really enjoy this series, Brattcat. Especially the last image.

That hill house in Cappadocia is absolutely amazing! Are people allowed to visit? How does one enter?

Love the old stone walls of the 'house' in Turkey, especially with the vines beginning to creep up them. Is it a castle too?

And I agree with Julie about the foliage in Brattleboro — beautiful trees!

Thanks, everyone!
Julie and Leia: some of the houses in the Cappadocia hills are for pigeons but some are for people (though mostly the cave houses are used for storage now in part because they have no plumbing or wiring). We stayed in a cave during our time there and it was extraordinary, especially during a thunderstorm. (we did have plumbing and wiring btw)
Hilda: Clever girl. The "house" in Istanbul is actually part of Topkapi Palace.

I really like this way of showing picture and I am so tempted to do the same thing.

Excellent series! This first photo is just beautiful!

The image from cappadocia is unreal looking . . . reminds me of the "cliff dwellers" in the southwest. Are these all from your recent travels? I'm traveling for the next few days and will visit again to catch up . . . I just took a quick look at yesterday's post . . . I'm salivating now.

Brattcat, I'm really enjoying your theme sets! They are all wonderful although my preferences go to Cappadocia as one of the most amazing places I've visited. You can check some shots on my travel blog if you like.
