Bashfuls day in the Hot Air Balloon


Hi folks..i am continuing Bashful’s holiday with us by re visiting the Hot Air balloon ride..i had not shown his pics of the day as I was doing a more ‘serious’ as such post on the event .

But trust me the little guy WAS there and had a blast..you can read about the day here  https://dinz1234.wordpress.com/2015/01/02/floating-gracefully-into-2015/

I also remembered our Pilots name Shaun..so that was a bonus! Please enjoy some more pics of our fantastic morning in our beautiful Balloon..

  2. Wow Wow and Wow! These photos are gorgeous. I don’t think I could go up in one of those but the sights are beautiful. Gosh, Bev, do you think it was wise to hold Bashful over the edge like that? Was he shaking? 😆

  8. What gorgeous photos, Bev. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a basket quite that big, that holds that many people, on a hot air balloon. I might feel a bit safer in something big like that! Bashful doesn’t look scared at all….he shares your adventurous spirit. 🙂 xxoo

    • Thanks sweets this big lens Brutus is a Sigma with a Nikon mount..not good at wide angles as it is really all zoom it’s a 150-500mm F5-6.3 a great lens for my roos etc and a lot cheaper than a Nikon lens..still about 1800 dollars or so Aus I recently got a great little wide angle whch is good for landscapes and it’s a Sigma as well 10-20mm wide angle.also a comparatively cheaper lens than a Nikon but a great lens at about 600Aus dollars 😉 check out some Photographers sites and their reviews on lens 🙂 xx
