Up and Away

I had the opportunity two years ago to take a hot air balloon trip in Austria. For the photographer it’s very restricted in some sense as you cannot move at all given the very small passenger basket you are in. You can of course take many aerial photographs which are wonderful but here I took a slightly different view looking directly upwards to the balloon canopy. Using a wide angle lens and crouching as low as I could in the basket you get a good perspective of the balloon, the burners and of course our excellent balloon pilot Josef (Sepp) Huber who was probably one of the world’s top balloonists.
