Bristol Balloon Fiesta 13-15th August

Hi all

I had the pleasure of going down to Bristol last Friday for a very enjoyable 3 days in which I managed to get to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta on a number of occasions

As with all things that are hot air balloon based the weather plays a massive part in dictating the success or not of the event and in hindsight things could have been considerably worse than they turned out. For anyone who hasn't been to a Fiesta before it is a great day out and in the current climate of rapidly increasing airshow prices is terrific value for money and there is so much more on offer than the balloons themselves

Despite the challenging conditions it was great to see large numbers of balloons launching on the Friday morning and Sunday evening, as well as the spectacular nightglow on the Saturday night

Anyway, here's a few of the shots that I came away with and hope you enjoy them
