In the artist’s own words: "On a very early morning hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia Turkey, I was not sure what to expect. We took off in the dark of the early morning and watched the colored balloons light up in the dark sky as they fires were lit under them. As we rose, so did the sun. Looking down at first light over the fairy chimneys and rock formations was a view like no other. "
