Flight over Egypt

By vickyf
A short series from the archives today of a few images taken during my first ever balloon flight from Luxor, Egypt. A fantastic experience which I'd managed to repeat once in Turkey. I was using my first digital slr, the Canon 5D, with a 28-135 lens, both of which have been sold to make way for 'bigger and better' equipment. When I look at some of the images I took with that combination, I sometimes wonder if I should have stayed with the cheaper options! A great camera/lens combination for anyone starting out.

It's pouring with rain here yet again today, so my work is on hold yet again and there will be no excuse for not catching up with everyone's portfolios over the next couple of daysSmile

Four superb pictures Vicky. The ballon in V3 stands out beautifully against the terrain. Peter.

No rain here,but still dismal!
A great set Vicky, but would not be in the hot air balloon for anything!
My neighbour has one and helicopter and will not go up in either to do photographs.
Amazing sights here though, like them all
