Hot Air Ballooning,

Melbourne-2

 
Last week I left off just as…

our hot air balloons were being filled with cold air.

However, it wasn’t long before hot air was being pushed in…

and the balloons were beginning to stand upright.

I think this looked spectacular in the half dark…

 and would like to see what our balloon looked liked

when it was given a warm blast of air.

Without much further ado we lifted off gracefully…

into a chilly Melbourne sky.
No engine roar, or thrust back into one’s seat…

just the knowledge that if I jumped out

it was going to take longer and longer

before I landed on terra firma!

Two other ballooning companies were aloft that morning.

And these are never before seen views of Melbourne…

before sunrise.

Little did we know that the GoPro camera

was set to take a photo every 5 seconds.

We were not expecting to be emailed

around 135 photos as part of the deal,

but extremely grateful to receive them.

Every now and again we would see this sight.

If you look carefully you will see a GoPro hanging

on the left side of this balloon.

 Although the moon had not set the first of the sun’s rays

were beginning to light up some of

the taller building in Melbourne’s CBD.

 More next week.
