Wine Country Morning

By PaulY
Sunrise over Napa Valley California. Taken from a hot air balloon.
What an experience. The ballons are absolutely quiet except when they fire up the burners. They float along at the same speed as the breeze so you hear no wind at all!

Sweet. The landscape is great and the balloon adds just a bit more interest. Nice.

The mist just makes this one, subtle tones contrasting the brash colours of the balloon.
