This one has been on my bucket list for a very long time! I have tried a few times to go and be in a hot air balloon but it was always a miss. This time, I made it, and what an experience it was! I went with Rio Grande Balloons, North of Taos. They are a great group, we've been with them from 5 am until 9.30 am. Yes, we had to get there early, it was a bit cold but the temperature got better when the sun started to rise above the mountains. When the balloon was being filled with air, I asked if I could go in to take a few pictures, they agreed, and soon, everyone was inside the balloon. We stayed there for a couple of minutes but it was an amazing experience and would be a great location to do a photoshoot with a ballerina. The team was answering all the questions we had and offered history lessons at the same time, I enjoyed those a lot especially when it talks about France. It's an experience of a lifetime, I'm going to want to do it again. I wish I had my wide-angle for a few shots but not that many.
