Ballooning

Ballooning.  A likely and expected activity for any wine country adventure.  And as my good friend and mentor Peter Poulides said, pretty predictable subject matter for photographers.  Ahhhh…. but what an experience.  This was my first balloon ride – and 8 of us wedged ourselves in the basket to share it.  The countryside is breathtaking – even more beautiful, and somewhat unbelievable is, as Matthew our Captain said, the trees look like flowers.  Floating about the tree line – seemingly weightless – looking at the world from a different perspective was enchanting.
