Wonderful shot! It must have been an incredible experience, just the sound of the wind...and the occasional blast on the gas, I suppose..It's a big basket by the look of it, too!

All those hundreds and hundreds of fields, peeling away slowly and smoothly, like stickers on an enormous roll...fantastic, William. I feel all excited and I haven't even been in a balloon. I'm just sitting in the kitchen! I can't thank you enough for sharing these very special photos!

Very best wishes from OZ,

Hey Sue - yes the landscape seems to just glide underneath you rather relentlessly. I had to keep turning round to see what was happening on the other side. We even got champers at the end!

Nice scene of ground and lovely comments from Sue. I am not that good in English but can clearly feel beauty in the Sue's description. It seems there are other charms in Panoramio other than photos! Thanks to you both!

Another of Panoramio's charms, is to come across a person such as yourself, who is kind enough to take the time to show such appreciation of others' efforts, and I'm sure William will agree with me on that point. Thank you so much,Masoud Nemati, for your lovely message..

My very best wishes to you both,
