That's super. The balloon has a surreal effect on this picture. God bless.

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

Stunning ... hot air ballons really do look good floating slowly across the sky..

Just a quick visit to say thank you for joining in with Sky Watch.

You have to love doing this. It makes a nice photo too. I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

Good effect. Beautiful shot.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You've almost got me convinced to try going up in a balloon. Emphasis on the "almost." LOL

D Herrod said...

Like the balloon. Oh, and the palm tree as well.

Raven said...

Nice shot. I like the perspective which makes the balloon seem so small hanging almost like an ornament off the tree branches. Your heron down below is beautiful.

Quiet Paths said...

Ha, I had to look twice to make sure I was seeing that hot air balloon! Magnificent!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh this is a great shot

April said...

Beautiful clear sky, and the hot air balloon just adds to the marvelous summer scene. The palm tree? is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by earlier.

Pearl Maple said...

Fun addition to Sky Watch Friday, thanks for sharing your view of the world.

Janice Thomson said...

Beautiful capture George with the balloon.
Are those date palms - and are the fine needle-like branches part of the palm's flowers? Or is that moss growing on them too?

Jenn said...
