Cool series! Love "up there" and "can't see a thing" - gives you some idea of just how BIG those things really are. Looks like a fun outing.

There's something really serile about a ballon flight - notwithstanding that there's no wind in your face as you fly at the same speed as the wind:

They look really cool: composition, exposure and wonderful colors. Great dynamic range. What camera and lens?
