Bel paesaggio, molto diverso dai miei e per questo molto interessante.
È bello vedere il mondo tramite le foto di amici lontani.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Ces photographies réalisées depuis le ballon sont superbes et donnent une idée de l'environnement et de la topographie générale.
C'est vraiment impressionnant. Merci pour la note d'accompagnement également.

I saw on the news that there was a balloon accident at Luxor in Egypt. Authorities should have enforced a ban on flights if it was too windy. It's well worth doing under safer conditions like here. Well composed with good sharpness. Tfs!

The light mist and the low light have had quite an artistic effect on this photo of mainly hills. The colours are beautifully mild and the whole photo has a kind of softness that I find very appealing.

Landscape makes impression.
Good frame and delicate colors.

You have made good use of your zoom lens to encapsulate this fascinating landscape. The military post sat under the little puffy cloud makes a good focal point. Agreeable warm lights and colours.

Great view of this landscape with the gentle slopes in the foreground and the higher mountains further away. The warm light is very pleasant too and I like the combination with the haze. Very well captured.

You had a good perspective from the hot air balloon. The point of view is showing the details of the Mount Khermon through the haze. The light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Le zoom a beaucoup d'avantages. Surtout qu'il rend presque inutile de sortir de sa chambre pour prendre des photos. Ici , je me demande si c'est de la pollution ou de l'humidité dans l'air.

In difficult circumstances with the balloon, but still a very nice panorama about the area .
Perfect captured, nice nature picture, a lovely composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I suppose it is not really permitted to hike the mountain with a military base and the summit being behind the Syrian border... It is incredible how close you have to live to war zones. Quite scary when you think about it. In Poland we border with Ukraine which is still in the state of war with Russia, and I visited Ukraine last year since the war is concentrated in certain areas.
Interesting romantic view of the mountain,

Well, the balloon ride must be fantastic, and the ample plains here were great to see as well. Good work, congratulations!

From such an unstable viewpoint, you achieved a fine shot!
I was interested to read your notes about ski-ing here in winter because my mind immediately wondered if snow fell on this mountain.
At this time, the weather looks warm and pleasant from the golden and ochre hues that predominate.
The f/g slope makes a good separation line for the purpose of composition.
Have a lovely day,

Nice view of Mt. Hermon, I'd love to see a snowy photo of the mountain.

Sensational this wide view on Mount Hermon and its slopes, where we can see some populations, an area that seems extremely arid.
Good perspective of the image, very pleasing to the eye.
Very good composition, magnificent presentation.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Ike, Nowe it looks really like taken from the balloon. Wonderful view from above. Splendid landscape picture. Nice view of the villages. Impressive view, nice warm colours. Excellent composition. Must be fun to sit in balloon cord-connected. The same view all the time but not danger it will fly away to far. (To Syria, for example).
Kind regrads Malgo

and once again, I never thought about skiing in Israel, but I guess it can happen at high elevations. I wonder if locals are able to hike to the top, if there are trails or not.
always good to see new and different places around the world, this is included in that. Good to see the WS as well.
Was it easy to take pictures in the balloon? Can you compare with taking pictures in a riding train or bus? Or not at all?
While the photo in the WS shows a flat valley with lots of fields, on the main picture we get to see a rougher landscape. The warm colours make the view attractive.
Best regards, Paul
