Remarks: I had to drive 15 kms on a muddy road in a forest to get in a good position for this photo, but it was worth of the car wash. The duration of the flight was 12 hours 42 minutes, it is a new Finnish and Nordic record. [Nikon D300]
Remarks: A hot air balloon just gone airborned at Furtwangen in the Black Forest during the sunset on a beautiful summer's evening. Sadly I got absolutely no information about it - but a friendly jp.net user added some. This one is my 1st pic of a hot-air balloon - and the 1st of D-OMKR within jp.net. Seems to be really rare, this bird!
