Balloons - SkyWatch Friday

At this time of the year it is not unusual for us to find hot air balloons drifting over the house in the early morning. It must be a wonderful view from up there. A trip like this is on my ‘must do’ list – but there again so a lot of things!

The sky was very pale blue in the morning, so I could not get ant really rich colours, but I’m pretty happy with the results – especially as I was still half asleep!
You can find more skies at SkyWatch Friday.

You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the skies.


  1. A huge colorful sky. Makes us dream. Should be good fly in these balloons ...
    Have a nice day Stewart!


  2. Oh, how lovely! Such cheerful shots.

  3. Such a sight full of romance and longing to be up there drifting on a gentle breeze . . . unfortunately one would not be drifting so very peacefully across the landscape at all with the roar of the flame above one.

    Nice shots Stewart.

  4. I always wanted to try that!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  5. relly pretty!!

    Spring is all around us! The Nature Jotter opens its doors to all photography's lovers!
    Send your naturalistic photos to or post it here! All the photos will be published on the blog with links and names of participants! Enjoy! :))

  6. Lovely, pale skies and delightful balloons! I did get to take a balloon ride in California several years ago and it was fantastic! I did love being able to look the birds in the eye in their territory! Have a great weekend!


  7. I think you should move this to the top of your "to do" list. Think of the wonderful photos you could share with us!

  8. I've always wondered what it would be like to be up in a balloon. I think I'm too old to want to do it now. :)
    Great shots!
    How wonderful to get that moon and balloon in the same shot.

  9. Cool sighting of the balloons, it is neat seeing them together in a group. It would be fun riding in one. Happy skywatching!

  10. Interesting Sky Watch photo!
    I've never been in a hot air balloon, either. Looks like fun, but maybe a little scary!
    Happy Sky Watch Friday!
