The ethereal landscape of Cappadocia is one of Turkey's top attractions, and the fields of naturally-hewn "fairy chimneys" and mysterious rock caves here have intrigued visitors for years.

These days, however, there's only one way to take in Cappadocia's unusual formations – from the air. On still days at dawn, a swarm of hot-air balloons slowly ascends as the sun rises, offering a new perspective on these oft-photographed wonders.

This video perfectly captures the magic of that flight with a combination of hyperlapse, soft-focus and slow-motion footage. Our pick of the week, it's the most beautifully captured footage of Cappadocia that we've seen.
