With the people in the basket adding scale you really show the size of the balloon even though we only see part of it, if that makes sense. - gary

Lovely capture of the balloon. I'm not sure you needed the aeroplane, but hey, its your image.

I think the people in the basket had plenty to look at, Sandy, and the aeroplane is not really needed. Wonderful colours in the balloon, would love to have been up there with them Smile Carol

This reminds me of our ballooning escapade in New Zealand, I am not sure whether I would have liked the plane flying
around quite that near. Nice shot……….Jocelia…….

My husband's dream is to go up in one of these. We rode the Goodyear blimp on year before they retired it, and now this is his dream - don't know if I would feel safe up there or not.
Well composed image.

the airplane and the people seem so close and yet so far - once your brain has separated them. Excellent perspective.
