Weekly Photo Challenge – Scale

One of the most exciting things I’ve ever done was this hot air balloon ride – untethered!  I was great as we lifted off but when I saw that small private jet go by in the distance and we were higher than it? Ummmmm death grip on the side of the basket; like that was going to do anything but I’d do it again in a heartbeat!   This image really shows the depth and scale of things from my vantage point.  Like the two other balloons that took off behind us that look almost like two toy balloons in the distance.

    Fantastic. I have a fear of heights, but I’d still like to go up in a balloon.

    I wish I had your strength to do this, both hubby and I are fearful of heights!

      It was our anniversary present to ourselves and it was nerve wracking for a minute at the high heights. When we came down lower I was fine.

    Gorgeous photo! I love that this was taken from a hot air balloon…I’m too scared to ride in one, but I can imagine it was an amazing experience! 🙂

    This is something I’d love to do someday. Good for you going for it.

    I’m not so sure I’d have the nerve for THIS! (nice shot too)

    Wow! Fantastic experience, and perfect challenge response. Those other balloons do look like tiny toys.

      Thanks 🙂 I think it was right around this altitude that I realized I am way up in the air in just a basket – eeek! LOL
