Cows might fly
Just one of the many hundreds of non-balloon shaped hot air balloons at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, New Mexico, last October. Creamland was one of the major sponsors of the Fiesta. I never did get to see this fly in person as shortly after getting this fully inflated, the breeze got up and made it difficult to control. I did see it on TV flying a day or so later though whilst having breakfast in the hotel.

Like this a lot, the contrast of the blue sky and the colourful balloons makes it look almost like a film animation, also the prospective of look up to the cow woks well, very well spotted and taken.

I take there is some sort of barrier to keep the massed GU away from the balloons, or does everyone just pitch in
This is a cracking shot, Creamland standing proud and dominating the scene with lesser balloons drifting up, up and away into the great blue yonder, luv it Alan, excellent shot, well done.

An amazing collection of brightly coloured balloons of all shapes and sizes standing out against the lovely blue sky and the GU in the foreground adding loads of atmosphere to the image,

A nice collection of balloons but nothing in the form of a pig?

Well they do say 'Pigs might fly'.

A lovely colourful shot Alan, roll on the days when we see skies like that in the UK again.
