Balloon Namibia

I captured the two images that make up this Vertorama from a hot-air balloon that was floating approximately one meter above the red dunes of the Namib desert. If I wasn't so scared of falling out of the basket... I probably could have leaned over and touched those bushes!


Note: The hard black line running across this image is not a stitching error... it's the tar road from Sesriem to Sossusvlei.


Unfortunately I don't have much free time for Flickr at the moment... but I'll catch up on all your latest images as soon as I do.


Nikon D300, Sigma 18-200mm at 44mm, aperture of f8, with a 1/800th second exposure.
