A sunrise hot air balloon flight over Melbourne is a remarkable experience. There are few major cities in the world that can be traversed by hot air balloon and there certainly is no better way to take in Australia's second largest city. In the early morning light balloons drifting by the array of parks and gardens that make Melbourne the world's most liveable city are a sight to behold.
We regularly get them flying over our garden, where I took these photos. One of these days, we'll take flight ourselves...

O yes, if there is an opportunity to try it one day, you really should. I have done it once and it's an absolutely amazing experience. Great skywatch photo's!ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, indeed! I took a ride in one several years ago with my daughter in California! I loved it and I loved being able to look the eagle in the eye! Awesome captures for the day, Nick! Happy SWF! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
Wow! That is beautiful!ReplyDelete
What wonderful lighting of the fire in the balloon! :) Fantastic!ReplyDelete
As aside: We are in Melbourne today. Melbourne, Florida, that is. ;)

Wow - fabulous! You would never see that over Toronto.ReplyDelete
Looks like fun!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete

That would be great to have the air balloons regularly flying over my yard. Here, it's fairly expensive to ride one. You probably don't know but SkyWatch was Klaus' meme, and died last year. In memory of him 3 bloggers then continued his meme. Have a happy sky watch!ReplyDelete
Great pictures -- I hope you do go up one of these days and I hope you share the view from on high.ReplyDelete
