Stock photos of Hot Air Ballooning

In 2008, I took a hot air balloon trip. We had a couple of flights cancelled before the weather conditions were just right for our planned balloon flight to go ahead. We were in the air for about an hour, but the whole experience lasted about three hours (starting at 4.30am), and gave us a chance to help inflate the envelope and to help pack it away again at the end. I hope my hot air ballooning photos will give you a taste of the whole experience, and perhaps persuade you to take a flight yourself one day if you have the chance.

If you'd like to download, embed or license any of these pictures, please contact me first. Feel free to ask me too if you're looking for more high quality photos of Hot Air Ballooning. I have lots of great photos in my stock picture library that aren't online.
