Flight of fantasy

By ColleenA
I went away to the Gold Coast to get away from all my stress and worries and had planned to have a quiet week reading and doing nothing. However minutes after landing I realised there were so many exciting things to do including a hot air balloon flight. The downside was the 4 am meeting time but once we got to the field and I saw the balloons I was super excited. This image was captured pre dawn as they were inflating the balloons.
Thank you to Jukka for his user award for yesterday’s image

Not a subject I recall seeing here on site, so all the more welcome and interesting: the first version with the act of inflating the balloon is absolutely beautiful.....and so well balanced and exposed.
