Photographer's Note

Picture taken during a balloon ride. Now, I haven't picked a city because I have no idea where we landed. It was scary in the beginning but once you get up there, it is so beautiful and quiet that you forget you're that high up in the air.
In this photo, we were getting ready to land (which can be pretty tough), and we eventually landed in somebody's backyard not too far from this field. It is customary to serve champagne after the landing with the owners of the property you land on, and that's what we did.
Hope you enjoy.

Answers to comments:
I know the horizon is tilted in this picture, it was really hard to hold the camera steady at that point, and I didn't want to rotate the picture because that would result in a crop and I would have lost the house on the right. I actually like it tilted, it gives it more of a dynamic look. But I apreciate all your comments and critiques. Thank you.
