Touchdown At The Clock Tower



I told you you'd be seeing a lot of the Clock Tower!! Hot air balloons are very popular with the tourists and the field behind the Clock Tower is ideal for landing. The field is soon to be developed into Downtown Champions Gate.

Again a nice photo. So, what is going to go on in/at Downtown Champions Gate? It is a great Clock tower no matter what. MB

I never would have guess that there was room for a balloon to land there! Wow!

Carletta said...

I was thinking that balloon looked awfully close too - so close it looks that that point on the tower could pierce the balloon at any minute!

George, what do you say to a picture from up in that balloon? :)

Champ Townboy said...

MB: Thank you! Offices, shops, residences and restaurants are planned for the Downtown.

Lynette: Illusion of lack of space, lol. Actually four balloons landed that morning within a few minutes of each other. I have a bunch of photos showing them two at a time and deflating, lol.

Carletta: It is deceptive! I have one shot where it looks like the balloon is going down in the woods, but then it sails back up and over to the Clock Tower!

Shot from up top: I say, "Yeah!!"
