Double dipping with the hot air balloon on the beautiful Dechutes River in Bend Oregon.

This was part of the Balloons Over Bend Festival that is put on annually July of each year.

I am a professional seascape/landscape photographer, and love photographing in Oregon where I currently reside.

I also travel to many other states to get the images I desire.

I have studied with the New York Institute of Photography as well as the Nikon School of Photography, and hold certificates of completion from both institutions.

Photography has been a big part of my life for over 40 years, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have a real passion for this art form.

    What a ripper of a shot!! :D Well done, Nick!

    This was a deliberate act on their part?

  • I like that name ripper…. lol :-) Yes it was deliberate on their part. The pilot I fly with does not do any dipping with his basket. He says it’s hard on them to get them wet and it takes life off the basket. They are very expensive to replace too… It is awesome to see them dip though… Thanks so much for the comment Donna… xx
