Inside View of Hot Air Balloon by 

I walked behind the balloon as it was being prepared for take off,
I noticed a little flap and lifted it up and looked in, this is what I saw.
I closed the velcro flap very carefully as I was flying in that balloon within 30 minutes.

Taken with a Leica R9 with a 80mm 1:4 lens using Agfa high colour saturation film

  • Soooooooooooooooooooooooo gooooooooood Mel, this one was over the vineyards and wheat fields out of Mildura.
    My most fantastic flights were over the Outback 50 k’s from the Alice, lifted off at 5am it was 40 degrees as the sun came up over the East McDonald ranges , what a sight, what a memory!

    Wow ronald GORGEOUS and absolutely eye catching…always loved the vivid colors of these balloons!

  • Oh to be up flying in one of those babies once again, specially over the Outback where time stands so still.
    Wouldn’t fancy the Melbourne flights, another one came down yesterday in a lake I beleive.
    How are you sweet princess, hope you are feeling 100% better.
    Happy days,
    Rock, your friend.
