About This Image:
I was amazed at just how zen I found the experience of flying in a hot air balloon to be. I was definitely pushing beyond my the boundaries of my comfort zone when I made plans for the hot air balloon flight featured in this vibrant print. I find that travel typically involves doing things we would never do at home. And thus I found myself getting up before dawn to see the Egyptian skies near Luxor. Those morning skies were a riot of ever-changing colors.
I will never forget watching the balloons surrounding us on the desert lifting into the skies. All sense of trepidation had fled and all I wanted to do was join them. There was a part of me that felt like we were in a race and they had the advantage. As we drifted up into those colorful skies, and I saw the balloons above… well, the race was over… All I cared about was the amazing view of those hot air balloons floating above us. And yes it was every bit as amazing as this Egyptian hot air balloon print suggests.
I am not sure if I was incredibly fortunate that morning or if the skies over Egypt from an aerial perspective are frequently this brilliant. But the colors were almost indescribable. Look at the deep purple laced with pink in this print. If I had to name those colors, I am afraid the only name that comes to mind is cotton candy with almost the same spun sugar consistency.
There was an element not just of zen but of serendipity as we and the hot air balloons around us drifted on the breezes. There was no way to plan a shot. I simply had to react to the moment. Such as seeing that one lone golden balloon suddenly fire its burners. That one glowing hot air balloon really makes this print for me. It reminded me of a massive firefly glowing just out of reach in those vivid skies.
In some way, I feel like my series of hot air balloon prints taken that morning are infused with the magic of that moment. I still feel the same cold morning air far above the desert and the almost ethereal sensation of flying where the wind suggested. I’m glad so many others seem to appreciate them as much as I do. Don’t you feel the magic of that morning in this vibrant print?
Whether or not you have drifted on the breezes over Egypt, I know this is a colorful print that brings that zen carefree spirit along with it. I hope you might pause for a second to share what you find most striking about this hot air balloon print?

Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!

…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
