Is there a air ballon to be in the early morning?...folks standing around enjoying themselves and getting the heat...very nice night capture

@StarCosmosBleu: This is part of the 'night glow' where a number of tethered air balloons fire up their burners in sequence and in time with music. Quite a sight.

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

fantastic pov - can I assume you were in a balloon yourself

@Jules: No Jules we were part of an audience of thousands at Ashton Court in Bristol. We were probably 200-300 yards away - I used a 70-300mm lens and cropped the image............

Balloons are still magical, IMHO, even in the internet age. You are right, it doesn't matter if the are doing a ground burn, or sailing over your head, they are always a sight to stop and stare at
