Amish Buggy Hot Air Balloon Picture Stock Travel PhotographyA photographic image that incorporates a couple of my favorite subjects and experiences when I toured The Amish Country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I made three separate trips to this area by motorcycle in 2021. As a travel and adventure photographer and writer, the Amish people quickly became a favorite subject. Their lifestyle, after all, is one of the biggest reasons tourists from all over the country visit this region. Their quaint ways are so different from what one witnesses anywhere else. Their use of horse drawn buggies for daily transportation being one of the things visitors notice (and photograph) first. A second reason I visited this area was to visit with a dear friend who happens to be a licensed hot air balloon pilot. (He is also an internationally recognized professional photographer who has spent 4 decades documenting the people and lifestyle in the Amish community). When visiting with my friend I had the opportunity, on more than one occasion, to be part of the "Chase crew" for his balloon flights…the team that follows, from the ground, the flight of the balloon; and is responsible for the safe landing, disassembly and return of the aircraft to the launch field from which it arose earlier. This serendipitous moment occurred during one such "chase". As my friend was bringing the balloon in for its landing on an Amish farm, an Amish family happened to be riding by in their horse drawn buggy. I was equipped with my Nikon mirrorless camera fitted with a Nikkor zoom lens and was able to capture this image of the family going by with the bright red balloon landing in the field beyond them. During many trips by motorcycle to the Amish Pennsylvania Dutch region of Pennsylvania over the past few years I have created many photographic images of the Amish people and lifestyle. Many of those pictures appear here on this web site and I have an extensive library of stock photographs available in addition to those displayed here. Many of the photographs I take during my adventure motorcycle travels around the United States and Canada ultimately get sold or leased as stock photographs. If you are looking for any particular image for your next travel and hospitality industry creative project take a look around my web site for any image that might fill your needs. In the absence of same, give me a shout. I may have just what you are looking for in my extensive body of work. If not, I’m always looking for an excuse to climb on my BMW motorcycle and travel to any great destination in the US or Canada.
