Floating away

Choose a golden ray –

Melt into the air

And float away

Like a balloon riding on a sunbeam.

(It’s just the anklebiters, the dog and myself on a private island for a few days, so I may be a bit late in visiting you all.)

  48. Skies like that and an island to yourself – call me when I stop dreaming!!! Nice pictures.

    The shape, form and colour of the central Australia landscape may not be unique – but I’ve yet to see anything else like!

  54. Stunning scenery once again, Fiona! This photo makes me want to either sit by the lake or take a ride on a hot air balloon! … Since it is sweltering HOT outside, I’d choose the former (under some shade with a tall glass of sangria!) …

    July 19, 2013 at 16:10

  55. You captured a true golden moment, wondrous!
    Enjoy your island days,

  74. A perfect time of day for a balloon ride! I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to go for one but I sure would like to think I would be. Sunrise or sunset would be ideal!

    July 21, 2013 at 21:15

  75. Lovely pictures. The golds are terrific! I would love to go ballooning- I think. I’m afraid of heights ;) Cheers, Danette
