F-r-ight Or Flight

It was 10pm when we got back from Chippy's hot-air balloon flight. 5th time lucky, I think. At last the weather was suitable for him to make use of a gift from the family.

I was really lucky to be invited along to watch the procedure. To mark the event I've used a shot of the preparation. Every one knows what a hot-air balloon looks like in flight so I chose this one of Chippy (some of you will recognise the camera bag) during the last stages of the balloon being filled by a fan. The basket is lying on it's side at this stage, soon to be righted and boarded. If you want to see the sequence see Flickr

Chippy, it was a bit scary to see you rising so fast
