I have the privilege of living in a place where I can see all kinds of cool stuff happening from my balcony.
A couple of weeks there was the weekend festival, with Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Darude, and a lot of other famous artists. I was lying in the hammock on the balcony enjoying the light shows and the music at no charge.
Another thing that happens all the time if the weather’s right, is parachute jumps. Either solo or tandem, the guys always land in the grass right next to the building. Paragliding they do off the same field, and there are two guys that always come with this kind of cart with a parachute attached to it and take off and land from the same field.
In winter they’re board surfing either in the snow on the field or on the ice of the sea a bit further.
Hot air balloons don’t take off from exactly the field out front, but from a bit further east. I can see them when they are fully filled with air and about to take off.
And of course then they come over here.
I caught this one a bit too late. I just came home from a shooting and it had passed already. But I manage to capture it still quite nicely (albeit with a 300mm + 2x + 1.4x extender).
