I'm amazed this photo came out this clear. Being my first time on a balloon ride, right before the ride I got scared, all the blood in my body drained in my feet, lightheadedness, needles in my hands... I kept on thinking "what did i get myself into?" It was one of the nicest experiences I've ever had. Once off the ground, I didn't care I was up there anymore. The fact that I was up there with my love, the beauty, the cool air and the silence make you completely forget that you are 2000-3000 feet above the ground. Other pics will follow.
Hope you enjoy.

Great title and great colors. It looks like it could use a bit of "punch" in the sleeping giant colorwise but no big deal. Great work.

I have a dream about trip by balloon, but it's only dream now))

Hi Gabriel, Lovely colors and great POV. I too recently took a flight in one of these, but my early morning pics were quite washed out by the sun. The clouds help here with that.

Such a bright, beautiful colours. As the balloon is slowly dimounted one gets proper impression how huge this object is. The sky is very nice, with tones ranging from grey to blue.
I also think that a bit of sharpening could be useful here.
