My wife and I and our photographer granddaugher, Izzy met up with Steve (Calnumismatist) and his girlfriend at the Windsor Hot Air Balloon Classic this morning. You can see his post here.
The balloonists in this event inflate their balloons before dawn and it makes for a spectacular sight which is difficult to expose correctly.

I lay on my back on the ground to get this shot:
The 16mm lens makes the huge balloon look small.
C&C welcome as always.
