We've selected the best candid trip photos submitted by our users to help you decide if the Yarra Valley Balloon Flight at Sunrise from Melbourne is right for you.
Of the three balloons in our group, I truly believe we had the prettiest! Of course, I'm a fan of multi-color balloons. We've always been in awe of the Albuquerque Balloon Festival and were totally delighted to take our first ever balloon flight in a nation almost half-way around the world!
Perhaps we'll one day actually get to Albuquerque and fly in one of the balloons during the festival there!
WOW! is the only word that came to mind.
There was ground fog over the moist areas. The air was so still. The only sounds were the occasional "blast" of heat from the burner to keep us aloft and, from the ground, the crowing of roosters and bleeting of sheep. One of the most peaceful experiences I can ever recall.
We were VERY fortunate to travel with 14 other folks who weren't "chatty". Everyone truly appreciated the beauty above and below.
Looking down at one of the other two balloons that came up shortly after we did. Hopefully, one of the folks from that balloon will also post some of their pictures that will include our balloon.
This picture was actually taken from the camera mounted on our Global Ballooning balloon. Brian had control of taking the pictures. Being as this is in essense advertising for them, I don't think they mind I posted it!
We learned that the direction of the balloon can only be controlled up and down. And, it can be turned but all other direction is at the discretion of the wind. Brian turned us around to where we faced the sun and then had us all "smile for the camera"!
Seeing the edge of our balloon and one of our sister balloons high above us presented a great photo op!
Yep, we were on our way down by now. I really wanted to stay up longer... it was so peaceful, but, alas, it was time to descend.
