Pretty Palettes - August Reveal

It is time for the 'Pretty Palettes" August 2015 reveal!   Erin Prais-Hintzhas picked the  Cappadocia area in Turkey.  She reports that "It is known for its unique moon-like topography, straight out of a fantasy novel. This ancient landscape consists of underground cities, cave churches and houses carved in the rocks. A millennia ago, people realized they could utilize the soft stone formations to seek shelter underground for a fascinating troglodyte-style architectural phenomenon. The actual landscape is eroded from wind and rain formed from layers of volcanic ash called tuff. Today, the Goreme National Park in Cappadocia, Turkey has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site."

I love this landscape and was inspired by chimneys shown in the 2nd photograph.  Wouldn't you love to vacation at the Goreme National Park?
