Shadow Shot Sunday: Up, up and away

It’s Shadow Shot Sunday so why not pop over and see what others have written and photographed.

Shadow Shot Sunday

While we were in Kenya we woke up one early to do a hot air balloon flight – another first for me. I don’t like heights, or more specifically edges, so I wasn’t sure how I’d go but I loved it!! Of course we were floating so low we could almost have jumped out, except for those voracious and carnivorous critters.

  1. That is something I’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t quite made it as yet. I have been up in a tethered balloon … In another lifetime..rising up beside early morning traffic on the Story Bridge, till we caused quite a commotion with drivers being, shall we say, a little amazed. We were very nicely advised to stop…great views then, but nowhere near as wonderful as your photos show. You really did have the trip of a lifetime.

    • That would have been amusing, seeing the traffic thrown into chaos 🙂 I can recommend trying it untethered sometime, but even better in Africa, where there were enough staff that that voyagers didn’t have to gather the balloon together.
