I've gotta agree...I don't usually look at balloon shots, but this one is terrific. It's sitting on my desktop now.  Big thumbs up

Same here. Now my current desktop. A truly unique photo, with great composition. This is what aviation photography is all about. Great shot Phillip!

Beautiful shot. The thing with ballons is that you have ages to take the shot lol whereas a airbus lifting off at 140 knots is slightly harder lol.  Smile
