Balloon Landing #5 (Sky Watch)

















This is the third balloon, rising just above the tree line, only to immediately descend to the landing zone. In photo #4 you can see the basket is caught on a tree top, and when it releases the balloon starts swaying back and forth, but still manages to descend and land okay. In the next to last photo you can see the crew holding the basket to keep it from tipping over.

More exciting photos to come!!! LOL

You know I love all of these but the first one is very appealing - love the framing.
What you get to see and capture is amazing - wouldn't mind walking around with you one day on your adventures. :)

Great SWF photos George! Are these rides all year round or just at certain times? That red balloon is quite attractive.
