Ohoho - HELLOOOO! - little bit to close to my house here, you guys! I don't like to see the color of your skin - that means you are too close!! And where the heck are you going in such a hurry - is something burning??

Photobucket

Oh yeah - the fuel is burning! Almost touchdown on some houses there!

Photobucket

Aaah - now I know where they are going....

Must be an Air Balloon Gathering! Look! There is their parliament!

Her var det masse flotte bilder:)
Morsom lesing om Holmenkollen også, har en svigersønn som har vært skihopper.
Men fant ikke noe bilde av hunden din.. :-)
Fortsatt god torsdagskveld:)

Dette må være st motiv du er nokså alwene om idag! Nydelig - akkurat nå skulle jeg likt å være i Oslo...

Rune (Bildebloggen) sa...

Der går det opp og ned ja, godt de ikke ble sittende fast i stolpen der. Det er sikkert gøy å sveve på denne måten, kanskje litt for spennende... Flotte bilder!

naturglede sa...

Wow, for bilder. Virkelig flott levert:)

John sa...

Flott fanget bilde series, Valkyrien.
Jeg har noen sånn fra i fjor sommer tatt her i byen.
Ha en fin helg.

I've never been up for a balloon ride but I sure love watching them from the ground.

Naturegirl sa...

Goodness! That is a bit too close for comfort for both passenger and observer!!
That first photo so peaceful!
I am too chicken to dare this!!

Ninnu sa...

Oh God, so beautiful. Your pictures are always so breath-taking.

i so love to see hot air balloons. we had some come near our home when we lived in southern california and actually land at the end of the street...technical problems they said ;)
beautiful captures...each and every one.

Greyscale Territory sa...

Incredible shots of balloons in flight! I would be a bit concerned if theywere low to my house too!

Tarolino sa...

De är så trevliga att följa med dessa. Vore egentligen trevligt att prova nåångång med det är rätt dyrt. Morsan har varit på ballongfärd hon. De kom rätt nära ser jag. Du bor högt uppe. En otroligt fin utsikt som du har över dalen nedanför.
Första bilden med de dramatiska molnen är helt fantastisk.

Dewdrop sa...

What a rare and special treat! On my list of things to do is going to a hot air balloon festival!

Reader Wil sa...

What a wonderful experience to see balloons at close quarters! This evening at 8 o'clock I saw some balloons here over our village, but they were very high. Your photos are excellent Valkyrien. Thanks for showing!

Pearl Maple sa...

Beautiful photos to celebrate Sky Watch Friday. Balloons are such a colourful subject against your pretty skies.

Thanks for sharing with us all and thanks for your kind comments on my post earlier.

Such a view you have from your house !! The color of their skin : close :-))

ROSIDAH sa...

Very remarkable views! I love it that we can see the people in the balloons so clearly. Have a great weekend :)

Carver sa...

They really did get close. I'd love to ride in a hot air ballon. I chased some hot air ballons in my car years ago. It was fun trying to follow them although I wished I had been up in one.

J Bar sa...

Looks like a great experience.

Awesome photos all! We live near Albuquerque New Mexico, the home of the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, where hundreds of hot air balloons, including special shapes, fill our skies in October.
It's very exciting!

Wonderful shots!!!
I wish I'll ever have the chance to ride on a hot air balloon and soak in all the great sights from above ;)

GreensboroDailyPhoto sa...

It must have been so much fun, being in the epicenter of all this beauty. Bet you were glad you had your camera!!!

Linnea W sa...

That's funny to see them so close to your house! Great shots of an adventure through the skies!

Kutuharju sa...

A wonderful SkyWatch-series! A different and creative approach to the subject, & lovely sense of humour :)

Ivon sa...

You always have such neat pictures. I enjoy watching hot air balloons. Here in Oregon we start seeing them in the early morning moving North to South. Sometimes they very close to the homes. Thanks for sharing.

Arija sa...

Balloons are all very nice, but I would not like them landing on my roof. They did seem a bit close over an urban area. Nice shots though.

MedaM sa...

Oh wow, that really is a wonderful sight and your photos are fantastic.

Michele sa...

It is a beautiful sight indeed! We rarely see anything like that around here... terrific photos.

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog.
Have a good weekend.
Hugs♥

Jan K. alias Afanja sa...

Beautiful series!
The first one is my absolute favorite, it's great!
Enjoy your weekend.

Tarolino sa...

Fick du nån sömn i går natt?

Kollage tar inte särskillt mycket tid i anspråk och jag gillar att greja dem. Man får liksom mera foton ihop på det sättet utan att ta upp alltför mycket plats.

Strax åker jag iväg till laaandet och planterar en ny knallröd rododendron samt några nya perenner. Ska försöka få tag på en Forsythia buske på vägen.

trevlig helg vännen min

Regina sa...

Interesting balloon. Great shots as always.

Kendris sa...

The first shot in particular is stunning; thanks for sharing!

Rajesh sa...

lazyclick sa...

WOWOW! Lucky you to have these in your skies! Must have been an exciting day to capture these! Wonderful shots again! :)

Anne-Sophie sa...

Kjempeflott bildeserie, Valkyrien!
Liker spesielt godt det siste; ser ut som mpnen nede i kanten av skogen der.

Barbara sa...

Beautiful balloons. It almost looks like you were up there with them taking pictures of the other balloons around you. How fun they must have been to watch. Have a great weekend. Smiles Barbara

Ebie sa...

Hehehe, before reading your post, I looked at the first picture. I thought you were in the hot air balloon. Ooops! Didn't you wish so? Some balloons are a close call. Nice shots Val. Didn't join today, but just visiting....

Bim sa...

Like most people I love balloons, too. I'm very pleased you found out where their parliament is, that makes it easier to find them in the future :)

P-TER sa...
