Canterbury Plains by Neil

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

One of many shots taken from my wonderful balloon trip from Methven above the Canterbury Plains, South Island, New Zealand.

This is the third in the set following on from preparing for liftoff and inflation

I chose this photo because it shows the beautiful patchwork fields that spread as far as the eye can see; the beautiful Southern Alps; the unique and typical braided rivers of the area; and the irrigation canal that siphons underneath the river.

I know you won’t be able to feel the exhilleration that I fellt, but hope this image gives you some idea.

For those of you who have already seen this image, my apologies – I uploaded it again because it appears there was a problem with the original upload.

  • Thank you Heather. They say that many people are hooked after their first flight and always seek out balloon flights whenever they go to a new area. I think I am one of those people. Just loved it!
