Picture of the day: Sunrise from a hot air balloon

A picture from the archive. I shot I it  when I went to Australia last Winter. It was a very early morning in the Tablelands  outside Cairns in Northern Australia, and we where ten people in the basket with quite the spectacular view over the sunset. -Ray

Picture of the day: Early morning view of the Cairn Tablelands

This image is shot very early in the morning in at a balloon ride outside Cairns in Northern Australia. Quite amazing to see the sun rise from that viewpoint.

Picture of the day: Sunrise from a hot air balloon

I had never had the opportunity to try hot air ballooning before , and when the opportunity I just had to try. It was calm and quiet experience. You just drifted away, where the wind took us. As you can see from the photo, there where other balloons out, and it was a view for a sunrise I have never seen before.

Picture of the day: A sea turtle swimming at the Great Barrier Reef

I have used the day on the Great Barrier Reef today, and it was amazing. I managed to get this image of a sea turtle that was swimming around amongst the corals. Have not seen one since I was in the Galapagos, and I think they are  such graceful creatures.
