Balloon Below (Exhibition)
This image was captured floating over the Hunter Valley, north of Sydney in New South Wales. Below us is one of Australia's oldest and most prominent wine regions, with a viticultural history dating back to the early 1800s. Hot air ballooning is a very popular way to view this most picturesque of locations, with the morning sun just risen and crisp fresh air surrounding us it's a tranquil and mesmerizing experience.
Gazing around this image appeared before me for only a fleeting moment as we hovered above one of our fellow ballooning parties and I was taken in with the graphic nature of the view. Triangles, circles and rectangles with such a vibrant splash of colour layered below me in passing harmony, visible and then gone again a moment later.
