Wow! That is mind blowing! The pictures are awesome!

Do you have to get permission from the FAA to launch a balloon 100,000ft?
How long does it take to go up? Come down? How in the heck did you find it so far away? Who is the guy with the axe, and how could you let him chop down a tree with your camera in it?

Thanks m80 - I missed that first post... by ~104,000 feet...

That's another stunning image PentaxPoke - excellent colors and clarity. Kind of cool it's almost in my backyard!

Again an amazing set of shots and everyone should look at the full Flickr series. Thanks for posting these again. The 10-17mm give an entirely different view than the 18-55mm. I'm really impressed how well it handled the sun and lens flare.

Awesome work. Guess the camera can take low temperatures without issue!

I hope you don't mind but my favourite is the following shot. Always been a Stanley Kubrick fan and this shot is similar to the one on the promo posters (reversed)
