My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective

Balloons over Stockholm

Hot air balloons over the city is a common sight during the summer. I like watching them pass by and I have taken a number of photos of them this summer. I was lucky on one occasion and spotted a couple of balloons with the perfect summer evening sky as background. Click, click, click from my camera and a little prayer that the result would at least be acceptable and here it is.

  1. Beautiful shot. Are you sure that those are not aliens landing on planet earth? šŸ˜‰

    Steffie: Thanks a million. Yes, I’m sure because I read the ads on the balloons earlier the same evening. Aliens don’t fly balloons with ads on – the attack by flying saucer and the only ad should be the saucer itself, secretly advertising the benefits you would get if you bought their tableware. šŸ˜€

    I really like the compositional simplicity of this shot. Well done Staffan.

    Ovidiusuteu: Thank you. This was just one of those lucky shots you get once in a while. Keeping it simple is often very difficult, but it looks like my picture style is developing from “occasional carelessness” towards “occasional minimalism” so maybe I’m learning it little by little. šŸ˜€
