A Bird’s Eye View – Landscape

Early, early, early one morning last May, while on holiday in San Migel de Allende, Mexico, we treated ourselves to a hot air balloon ride.  And me, with a fear of heights! But I didn’t think of that – not once all morning.  It was such a fun (and…ummm….uplifting?) experience.

  
Morning mists over the mountains.

  
The sun rise made for some long shadows.

  
We were not alone.

  
The lovely, historic, UNESCO World Heritage city of San Miguel de Allende nestled into the mountains.  The cathedral, the Parroguia de San Miguel Arcangel takes centre stage.  Can you find it?

      Thanks! It was fun to revisit these photos, and remember how beautiful that part of the world is.

    What beautiful views, and the light is so soft, especially in the first photo. San Miguel de Allende looks lovely. I have a fear of heights, so it is good to hear that you didn’t mind being up in the balloon…perhaps I should give it a try.
