With my new job, I’ve been getting up incredibly early (for me) at around 6am. It’s Winter in Melbourne and the sun doesn’t rise until a little after 7:30am at the moment and the temperature at 6am is usually around 4 degrees Celsius.
Last Saturday morning (yes Saturday, NOT a workday), I got up around 7:20am and as usually, stumbled my way towards the coffee machine. Of course, I had to go past my massive windows/doorway to the balcony and saw three hot air balloons floating past, just minding their own business I guess.
So I grabbed my camera and ran out there in my pyjamas and no shoes and managed to get these two shots before my feet started to freeze and I started shaking so much I was afraid I might drop my camera (I may be slightly exaggerating for theatrical effect).
I can’t decide whether I prefer colour or black and white. I do love those clouds high up in the sky and I absolutely love the fog over the city. The colour shot is a pretty good representation of what the colours were like. Orange sky and a blue haze to the fog over the city.
I would like to go up in a hot air balloon one day.
Have you done it? Was it amazing?
