Hot balloon

By tarara
Hot air balloon, filled and still firing. It's hot under that fire when they're on the ground. They were offering tethered rides during this "balloon glow" event. The basket you get into is chest deep and you have to climb over the top to get in. Those descriptions (hot, high, climb over in public) are enough for me to declare this is as close as I'm getting.

Great little shot...

try putting it through an image cleaner to get rid of the noise. Try a program called Neat Image that free to use. You will notice a big difference.

Thanks for the suggestion, uggyy, I tried it, but it didn't change the image. Keep suggesting, I like to learn. Yvonne

Made the mistake of getting out on a swinging rope bridge once. It taught me a life long lesson. That feeling of height that you love fills me with intense anxiety. Yvonne
