Balloon Attack



Balloon attack? Not really, but I needed a title, lol.

Three balloons converge on the Champions Gate Golf Clubhouse, along with a couple of runners and a car on the driveway. There were at least six balloons in total that morning, but I wasn't able to get one shot with all of them in it.

I've mentioned the size of these balloons in previous posts, but it's worth repeating. The balloon in the upper right, which is also reflected in the pond, is one of the largest balloons in the world - fully inflated it stands six stories tall and can carry up to twenty passengers. See shots of the balloon fully loaded and taking off here. Compare that with the balloon from two days ago, which carries a maximum of four passengers plus the pilot.

Neat colours. I'm a tad bit envious to see balloons when it is so darn cold here... :)
