18/07/05 Before I knew it, I was in the hot seat and my body weight was being balanced with the lift of the balloon.  Just before this point I dropped my camera on it's nose and completely

Kn*****ed  it. A very kind lady had the same model Nikon 8800, the rest of the shots were taken with her camera with my memory chip in it. --Nikon a replacement quick please!!

 

18/07/05 An exhilarating rather than scary experience, once you stop shaking that is! the fantastic panorama is worth it though.
