Thursday night I got the chance to race through the Oxfordshire countryside (we were late due to extremely heavy traffic on the A40) to witness the launch of a hot air balloon. I absolutely love these things. So serene and so physics defying. A bag of hot air and a basket. I think it took about 40 minutes to erect. We're talking, out of a trailer and inflated. I loved every minute shooting many frames. I hope you like the subsequent shots.
