Hot Air Balloons

I was looking at some old photos today and noticed the ones from a hot air balloon race last autumn. I remember the day; we had to wake up very, very early so we could see dawn patrol. That’s when the run hasn’t risen and a few hot air balloons fly into the sky, where their fires glow in the darkness. It is always magical to be there. ย then all of the balloons inflate as the sun rises and everyone watches them float into the air. I love the bright colors of the balloons; I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

  1. Years ago we used to visit the annual balloon festival in Northampton, I always found the balloon shapes and colours amazing. I still don’t think I’d be brave enough to go up in one though!

  2. This is such a good coincidence … just last night I was watching an awesome documentary (ah, no, not really, a cheery reality show is more like it, Ok, if you twist my arm I’ll tell you it was a Bravo one) and there was a guy in it with a biz idea of marketing bicycle-pedal-powered balloon rides in Vegas and it made me reflect on just how beautiful these balloons are and then here we and just like a wish granted, here’s your post for me to feast my eyes.
