Artist's Description

For my girlfriends birthday I got her and I a balloon ride over the Hunter Valley wine region just outside of Sydney. Two weeks prior to the going I started to drop hints on how it would be great to take photo’s from up there so on the big day there were three of us going on this trip, me, kelly and my G617.

It was a sunrise flight and I knew I had to hand hold my shots so I used the new Velvia 100 film which I pushed two stops to get a fast enough shutter speed at F16 ( still used my center filter as I didnt want fall off on the shots.) In this shot you can see another balloon below us.

This shot really appeals to me as no matter what way you orientate the image it works.

When we finally landed some 50 minutes later we hit the only tree in this huge paddock.
