“You cannot go to Cappadocia without taking a trip in a hot-air balloon and making some pictures—it's a must!” writes photographer Francois Nadeau. “Most of the photographers were taking shots of the sunrise, the landscape, etc. But I was also attracted to what was under me—the patterns, the little villages. So while I was taking pictures of other balloons and the sunrise and filming at the same time, I was keeping an eye under me for the best shot."

Nadeau’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen
