High flier, Yangshuo, China

Story behind the picture

“On our last day in China, we took an early morning balloon flight over Yangshuo. Seeing the karst landscape from such a different perspective, and in near silence, left us all speechless. It was like being in some kind of magical dream; even the pilot seemed to be in awe and he must have seen this view many a time. We drifted for over an hour before gently coming down to land where some locals gave us handfuls of freshly harvested peanuts from the field they were working. Talk about dropping in for a visit! With a roar from the burner, we took off again and drifted as the sun rose, spreading its warmth through the morning mists. The only sounds were the clicking of my camera and the beating of my heart. Priceless!” We’d love to include your best new travel photos (at 300dpi) and the inspiring stories behind them. Send them with a pic of yourself to postcards@lptraveller.co.uk
