Floating on Air

This is one of two hot air balloons that came over the roof of our neighbours house, I went to the attic and took this shot. In the background a beautiful Sunset/sky. Please visit the other Skywatchers (click the icon) and don't forget to leave a comment there.



No this picture has nothing to do with SWF but it is the original photo of my previous post. I promised to show it and now you know the secret of the "water painting".

thyme said...

I always love to see those balloons. They bring good luck (they must do, why else are they so pretty?). I never saw one that close though! Great photo.

reluctantfarmchik said...

The contrast between colorful balloon and colorful sky is awesome. And the art you created with your water painting is very cool. Great idea!

happyone said...

Oh, so that's what the relection is. Great idea. Thanks for posting the secret.
I love the hot air balloon and such a pretty sky for it to be floating in.

babooshka said...

The skywatch shot is smply stunning. The bonus shot is enchanting.

Patricia said...

The ballon looks like inviting you for an awesome trip...great photos! congratulations!

dot said...

What a nice shot! Beautiful balloon and a beautiful sky too.

Denise said...

Wow, look at all those layers of color behind the balloon? Beautiful photo.

Aggie said...

Gorgeous colours ... and don't we all just wish we could climb aboard and fly away!
I thought the water shot very, very clever.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Hello again Dick

I also like you Water Painting..

ah, so i was somehow right, a man with a stone on his head ;-)
great photo of the balloon with such a beautiful sky behind.

Neva said...

Hi Dick, I loved your reflection photo and the original is fabulous. Your hot air balloon is great! Did it land in your neighborhood? That happened once in ours and the lucky(?) home owner received a bottle of champagne for the "inconvenience" of having a hot air balloon in his back yard!

Dina said...

Oh the balloon makes me feel light as a feather.
Both your photos are just awesome!

Pernille's ting og tang said...

Thank you for telling the secret. It beautiful! And your sky watch-shot is just wonderful!

Have a nice weekend:)

Bonnie Story said...

Dick, this is great stuff. I am totally wowed by the two pics of the water painting. That takes a great eye and a good camera, and I'd say you have got them both in spades. Also a spectacular SW picture - reminds me of growing up in the CA wine country - balloons over the vineyards, sometimes having to make funny landings on the roads... Happy SWF!! Bonnie

Hyde DP said...

Thanks for revealing the secret - it doesn't spoil the mystery in any way at all.

Because of all the planes in our skies we never see a balloon.

Monique said...

I saw the water painting some time ago and was flummoxed.

Those balloons come over here very low too. The noise can be quite frightening.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

awesome balloon shot and very cool water painting!

Arija said...

Yours must be one of the sites i was unable to access last week.
Wish I had been on board, at least I would have waved.
Gorgeous pond, statue and waterpainting. Magic.

Amrita said...

A Blog In The Rough said...

I love the reflection!

Ineke said...

Fantastisch bedacht Dick, met de water reflectie. Ga eens nadenken hoe en met beeld ik dat zou kunnen gebruiken :)

Lilli & Nevada said...

Love the colors of the hot air and the sky.
The water painting is beautiful and i love the reflection

Nihal said...

I love balloons. In Cappadoccia region of Turkey it is organized balloon tours in order to show gorgeous panorama for interested ones, g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!
As for myself, yet not experienced having such a tour, hope one day soon.

storyteller said...

Both are wonderful images … thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,

Hildegarde said...

A gorgeous soft sky to accompany the balloon, great one !! The waterpainting is inspiring. En erg leuk van eens een taalgenoot te ontmoeten op de skywatch.

Nihal said...

Hi Dick,
May I kindly invite you to visit me at CrossRoads when you can please.
If I say there's a good reason waiting for your care and attention... Surprise.

Hope you are having a nice week and warm greetings.

Regards.

Nihal

Nice skywatch photo, I love hot air balloons, they are so graceful. Pretty too the photo that goes with the water painting!

Ted Roth said...

Lovely balloon shot - well balanced against the sky.

Anna said...

We have those in the neighbourhood sometimes, but since there was an accident once, I am kind of sceptical to take a ride on these baloons, lol. Great capture, Anna :)

fishing guy said...

dick: What a neat shot of the hot air balloon. that shot of the reflective sky is most certainly an appropriate photo for SWF, nicely done.

Abraham Lincoln said...

Nice photo of the balloon.

Digital Polaroids said...
