Taken in a hot air balloon while leaning back over the edge of the basket shooting straight up as the pilot ignited the burners to shoot hot air into the balloon for more altitude.

|Taken:||Wednesday, 18th February, 2009|
|Focal length:||70 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/1250 sec|
|Notes:||I wanted to capture the effect of the heat waves from the burners against the colors of the balloon. Using the 70-200 at 70mm allowed me to capture that effect and still retain a fairly close up view vs the 17-55mm lens I had which would have given to wide a view.|
