Let me tell you that the weather last Sunday, the 12th of July started awfully. Rain and wind, and mostly very low dark gray clouds made my heart sink in my shoes when I got up in the morning. Still, I had hope within my heart, that once we get on our way to Nijmegen the weather will change. We arrived in Nijmegen about 16:00 P.M. in the afternoon and the rain had just stopped. It was still gray and clouded however, but I knew that all will change before the flight… And it did! Like in a “called for” miracle, the sun came out of the clouds at around 17:30 P.M., and it became better and better, and the gray clouds dissipated, and the sky became blue with just here and there some nice white clouds 🙂
This is a shot by Willem just before the balloon will take off. It was a big hot air balloon with places for up to 24 people, but we were 18 and with the balloon guy a total of 19.
As you can see I had two cameras with me. The Nikon D60 for taking shots, and the Casio Exilim EX-F1 for the video covering most part of the hot air balloon flight.
And the last one is one of those shots taken above Nijmegen when we got up in the air. On this capture you can see one of the balloons that got in the air before ours did. I will share more photos and videos from this amazing flight, and if you ever wanted to take up with a hot air balloon – JUST DO IT! You will love it al the way, trust me 🙂
