Horses and mountains are always beautiful. I love both of them. This is a combination of two different shots, that's a manipulation following my imaginary. The foreground was taken in Cappadocia and the background at the base camp at 1,950 meters before the hike to the summit of 3,070 m high Kizlarsivrisi Mountain, Antalya, Turkey. Both of them, then, were manipulated in post processing with Photoshop. Hope you enjoy the outcome!

Abundance
Duden waterfalls is in a natural park within the city of Antalya. One could get there in 20 minutes from the downtown. I had just jumped into my car and had that great experience at a dusk. www.facebook.com/BakiKaracay

Early morning flight in hot air balloons over the valley in Cappadocia, a fairy tale country in Turkey. One of the best attractions of the world.

Blue Hour
Shooting during the blue (or golden or magic) hour can make a big difference in outdoor photography. These last hours of light before sunset, the sun is low in the sky, the sunlight travelling through a greater depth of atmosphere, produces less contrast, a soft, diffused light. The light then is much more flattering compared to the harsh midday sun with strong shadows or blown-out highlights. While the warm glow adds a pleasing feel to the scene, the long shadows also add a depth to the image.

Under Fog
Fog hides things in the forest but the silent beauty of a forest is unhidden. An image from today's hike of a beautiful forest with fog in Antalya.

Story

Photographer | Mountain Skier | Folk Musician / Feel free to be yourself!
Introduction
Photographer | Mountain Skier | Folk Musician 

Welcome! I mostly share my photography here on Google+ which is often about capturing the beauty of nature, landscape, people and travel related, but extends to just about everything else. I love to show people both the beauties they miss around themeselves in daily lives and also getting 'out there' far off the beaten path and showing people the wonders of nature as much as I possibly can. The images of 'human condition and experience' within different social, cultural, urban and rural environments inspire me most, and I am also fascinated with mountain photos.
I love learning photography and exploring the visual imagination of great photographers, and I think my passion provides me with the best ground for learning. I appreciate your feedback and it serves as a good starting point to get to know and follow you.
You can find me always with the same username "BakiKaracay" also on Facebook, Twitter, 500px, Instagram, Your Shot National Geographic, Fine Art America, and Redbubble .

Miscellaneous
My first camera was a Zenit TTL 35 mm SLR that I had in 1984 and my experiences were since through self-study. My last camera is my second digital and a Canon EOS 60D DSLR that I had in 2012. 
The world becomes a different place when you look through the lens,  –a great tool to help me see the world from an optimistic perspective where things are right, properly placed and beautiful as is :) 
As well as seeing Turkey, I am lucky to have been able to travel to USA, England, Greece, Macedonia, Austria, Slovakia, Italy, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Syria, S. Arabia, China, Hong Kong and Singapore.
