Baloon over Niagara

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

No risk at all. This is an observation balloon. In fact, the balloon is far backwards, not even close to the falls. Also, the balloon is tethered by a rope, which you can see at zoom-in.

The balloon gives the thumbnail a surreal look, almost commanding the viewer to take a closer look. Nice picture, great composition of white, blue, Niagara & balloon.

Awesome view of the falls and the balloon

Где падает вода возможны сильные турбулентности и нисходящие потоки воздуха. Не страшно же!
