Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Travel by hot air balloon


This hot air balloon created a great deal of excitement on a recent weekend away. I tried hard to capture the flame, with my iPhone, as the gas was being pumped into the balloon.  I am quite pleased to have caught it.

It’s the fourth Monday of the month which means it’s  Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge – and this week it’s Challenger’s Choice, for which I’ve chosen the topic of travel.

4th Monday Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Panorama, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel).

I haven’t been up in a hot air balloon but think that I would like to experience it one day.  It says travel to me…

If you’ve been up in a balloon, would you recommend it?

  1. Personally I am terrified of heights so would not go, but my Hubby went on a work Xmas party (took my spot) and thoroughly enjoyed it

  2. I know from experience what an adventure it is to hot air balloon. You are able to see the earth from a completely different vantage point. It’s magical. Nicely done on catching the heat source. Happy Photo Challenge.

  3. I haven’t been on one and having issues with heights, I’m not sure it will ever happen. But your photo expresses some of the beauty.
