Hot Air Ballooning Over Edmonton, Alberta

Welcome to my new Photo Blog–“Canada and Beyond“.

I’ve taken a lot of pictures over the years and want to share some of the best ones with you, and I think this is the perfect way to do that. I plan to publish pictures I’ve taken both at home (Canada), and away-from-home (anywhere BUT Canada), and would love to know if they speak to you at all.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of photo blogs in general and of this photo blog in particular. Thanks a bunch!

March 27

Spring is just around the corner in my little section of Canada, although it’s difficult to believe that today–today we’re having a blast of cold and wind and snow, a reminder from Mother Nature that she hasn’t quite finished with winter yet. Soon, I hope.

Warm weather is the perfect time for adventure, so today I thought I’d post a few pictures I took during my hot air balloon trip in Edmonton, Alberta last summer, and I’ll share the remaining pictures of that trip in upcoming posts.

We had a gorgeous sunny morning for our ride, and I like the way my photos turned out. I also wrote a more in-depth account of that trip on another of my blogs; check it out here if you’d like to read about my flight above the earth.

Stay tuned for more pictures of my hot air balloon adventure…

Do you have great digital photos? If you’d like to have them showcased here in a post, please let me know. After all, sharing pictures is half the fun of taking them, right? Right!

Please Note: Pictures must be rated G and you must own the rights to them.
