Cappadocia's Single Ballon Flight

I have seen numerous shots of tens and hundreds of hot air balloons flying over Cappadoccia, and I determined that when it was my turn, I was going to capture those similar shots. To my dismay, our balloon operator decided to go to a destination far from where other balloon operators went. So it was just our group; divided and flew individually; I wasn't going to get my shot of many balloons flying. Interestingly, having a single balloon in my frame provided just enough character to the image and allowing the landscape to speak volumes for its uniqueness and beauty.
