We made it down to Bristol for the last dawn ascent of the Balloon Fiesta. We had tried for the evenings previously, becuase let’s face it, who gets up at five in the morning to watch balloons? Ok fine, but not me, generally. The evenings had all been cancelled, because of the apparent turbulence up above our still, hot and sticky ground level air.
I’m not actually a fan of replacing the sky, and I hate it when someone tries to sneak one through. But at times it’s simply better to be a bit of an artist rather than a documentary photographer. These were all taken, by the way, from the Bedminster Downs on the Bridgwater road in south Bristol. From there, there is a fabulous long distance view of the Ashton Park fiesta site. These were all shot with the 600mm.
It was great to experience the fiesta after the covid hiatus. I hope you enjoyed the pics.
