Cruising The Vineyards A Finalist In The Australia Day Council NSW Photograhic Competition January 2011 by 

*Photograph taken over Mildura Victoria Australia during “The World Hot Air Balloon Championships”

I was using a Leica R9 with a Leica Summicron-R 90mm f/2 Lens & Agfa Proffesional High Colour Saturation Film.

I was in the ballon above this one.
I was deperate to have the car in the image, I saw it approaching from the left a minute or two before we passed over the ballon below.
I had no control of the situation and just managed to get it in the shot as I had been panning all the while

I was reading a copy of “Australian Traveller” magazine last month, it is a wonderful glossy mag with amazing images from all over Australia.

I noticed a photographic competition with a prize of a Canon 450D camera with an 18-55mm IS lens and a 55-250mm IS lens.

I entered my “Cruising The Vineyards” shot
and was so thrilled today when buying the latest issue to see there was a double page photograph of my shot today 26th May 2010

I had won the prize and been published!
