Devrent Valley, Turkey

Devrent Valley (also known as Imagination Valley or Pink Valley) is located about halfway down the road from Avanos to Ürgüp. This valley has a lunar-like landscape with rocks shaped in animal formations! No inhabitants ever lived in this area but the wild shapes in this landscape is worth a stop to check out! The area is covered in tiny fairy chimneys (as seen on the left hand side of this photo).  Our stop here was very short so I didn’t get the chance to see the other animal shapes naturally carved out of these rocks such as a dolphin, snake and seal.Devrent Valley_Panorama1.jpgMore fairy chimneys dot the landscape.

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
