Canowindra Balloons Challenge 2018



I haven' t been back to Canowindra to for the Balloons Challenge and I promised myself that I will come back one day. Hopefully I don't lose any photos this time around as I didn't do a good backup of my photos. 

I think it was 2014 when I first introduce to the small town of Canowindra in Central NSW. My sister introduced it to me as she was a photo enthusiast just like me, or maybe her enthusiast has rubbed on to me. 

I came back this time by myself and ofcourse the camera on as my friend. I camped right next to where the balloons usually took off each day and that was helpful. But the best view where you could see everything is at the lookout "Blue Jacket Lookout". Only the locals know about the place and when we were first arrived in 2014 we ask where was the best lookout in town as we like to take photos during sunrise and sunset and it happens to be the best spot in town to see all the actions.

I usually have at least two cameras with me but a freakist wave took out two of my cameras so I have to get use to having one camera and no backup. It really sucks if somehow my camera broke down when the effort to drove 5 hours to get to the town. That's my next goal a new camera with in camera stabiliser from Panasonic. I haven't lost a photo due to a camera failure yet with Panasonic.
