water landing by Celashan water landing by Celashan
This picture was taken during "Les Montgolfiades de Metz", a hot-air balloon event, over the roofs of Metz, France (september 2009)

The starting point was next to a water spot in the middle of the city. Just after the take-off, some balloons pilots played to come very close to the water.. and sometimes so close that passengers were forced to have a foot bath .. ;)

----
taken with a Canon EOS 400D
Exposure: 1/500s
Aperture: f/6.3
Focal Length: 200 mm

the picture was cropped and colors rehanced
i played a little with the curves

thanks for your appreciation ! :)

My cousin fly's Hot Air Balloon's. I got to do this with him before. It's called water skimming.
