Ballooning in Australia

08 Jul

Mildura Victoria hosts the annual ballooning competition in Australia

The sight is spectacular when you gaze skyward and see a myriad of colourful balloons crossing the sky So quiet and awesome , the early morning mist rising off the Murray river giving an ethereal ambience

All is quiet and the silence is only broken by the occasional burst of air as the balloon is given thrust in its solitary sojourn

These are a few pics I captured one beautiful morning in Mildura as this balloon took to the skies

Dont know about that last pic but dont think I would like that hovering over my house , seems to make me feel like I need to go in a hurry

    Yes I see that you have added some very nice rigging on one of these balloons Ian,
    obviously this balloon is in the Fantasy Class? Mind you if any more hot air is added I
    fear that something will most definitely be exposed… lol

    A Great Posting Ian…

    That is the sort of humour Emu has, it takes all segments to complete the circle.
