    Great work! Well done- the cranes are a nice subtle touch-brings a bit or irony to the shot I think- birds watching humans fly- now there’s a twist!

    My God, this is just a sterling image, Bishop! The vista goes on forever, and then the uniqueness of teh two cranes watching the balloon. I love the soft, pastels colors and warm light. Beautifully composed. Excellent work! Cheers! Chris

    hey you could start a new “orange bubble” website. lol. nice shot, where’s all the trees?

  • John, this is a typical African savanna landscape. Loads of gorgeous flowing grasses and very few trees. It’s the favourite land of the cheetah.
