Located in the heart of Turkey, the Cappadocia region is home to a number of fascinating, and highly unusual rock formations. The most recognizable of which are mushroom shaped spires of varying sizes. Over the last 2,000 years people have carved into these spire's soft rock-faces to carve out sprawling underground cities.
I shot this footage over a two day visit to the Cappadocia region in early February 2012. I filmed it during a break in what turned out to be some of the coldest weather Turkey had experienced in more than 25 years. The result was a view of Cappadocia covered in snow.
This video showcases the natural and man made beauty of the area surrounding Goreme, then finishes with a video of an unusual local dish. The dish is cooked inside small clay pots which are then broken in half when the meal is served.

Video was shot on a Canon Vixia HF200.
