Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
The world’s a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful Balloon
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We’ll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We’ll find a cloud to hide us
We’ll keep the moon beside us
Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you’ll hold my hand we’ll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Balloon…
Up, up, and away…..

I was floating in the ballon above,
it was pure magic early on a misty, frosty cold morning.

  • I loved every minute of the flight, I have been up a few times, the best was at 4:30 am weather 35 degrees, silent no wind and up up up 30 kilometres from Alice Springs, saw the sun rise over the South Macdonald Ranges which was magic, looked down on herds of kangaroo and cattle, all you could hear was barking dogs. The experience of a lifetime
    Thanks for the comment Jayne

    a well captured image. Vivid colors, sharp details and great comp. The lines on the field below adds wonderful graphic element. Consider a slight color correction, as the image has a magenta tint. well done

  • Shona Tova Eyal,
    Belated thanks for the comment.
    I have not touched the image, what I captured is what you see, I don’t use filters or photoshop, I guess you could say I’m a purist.
    Regards,
