Italy: Ferrara: Then we swoop low over the old town.

I think that it was important for the context of this photo to say as you did "sweeping low" or the casual observer might have thought you were just a photographer in a tall building or mountainside. But NO, you were risking your life in a hot air balloon to bring us this beautiful photo!

Seriously, I would think it a bit (more) dangerous to swoop low with all of those buildings.

Bon weekend,

Gringo, it's unbelievable to make photos like that. I admire your courage. I look at balloons and they don't look substantial to me.

This picture is priceless because of balloons and roofs of buildings.... And of course of the sky.

Kaya/Genie, thanks for your comments - to be honest, I was so in awe of the sight of Ferrara from above I didn't think to be scared!
