These photos provide memories of a great “Up” for me. Although extremely nervous at first, I found the balloon flight over Bath to be an exhilarating experience. So, up, up and away I went……

this is something i have never done – so far 🙂 thank you for sharing your moment of courage.
You should try it – a fantastic experience. 🙂
Love the burner shot! Several others showed balloons from the ground. Love that yours is from the within-the-balloon perspective… starts to tell a story–and I want to see/hear about the rest!
Thank you. It was a fantastic day, throughly enjoyed my “flight”. Apart from the burner going off, everything was so still and so quiet, a very peaceful journey.
Wow, I bet that was a fun experience. Great photos!
It was, thank you so much for your comment
Yes, love the first pic… Tells the story without needing to see the balloon
Thanks Robin, just took the chance to shoot something other than the scenery below, although that was stunning.
You’re so much braver than me. Not in a million years.
I always though that too, then the family presented me with the ticket as a “Milestone Birthday” present – so I just had to take a very deep breath and go for it.
Seriously it wasn’t that bad, once you are up in the air, everything floats by so slowly, you hardly know you are moving and the basket is so high you can just see over the top.
Put it on your “Bucket List”, you’ll love it
Thank you. Nice of you to leave a comment, always appreciated 🙂
Love the detail shot of the burners!
Glad you liked it.
Thanks for your comment, it’s much appreciated 🙂
I love photos of clouds. They change so quickly it is great to capture their form.
Yes they are great aren’t they?
Thanks for visiting Carol, and your comments
