Balloons Aloft

Size Guide

In 2005 the World Ballooning Championships came to Australia, and with my good friend Vic living in the same town in which it was staged, Mildura, I saw a good opportunity to photograph this event.

Windy conditions meant that many of the races were cancelled in the mornings, so an afternoon race was scheduled. With over 50 balloons assembled in a paddock in the middle of nowhere and the sun slowly setting, the anticipation was palpable.

As the pie balloons drifted into the sky, the burners lit up, and slowly, one after another the balloons slowly lifted into the sky. Soon the noise was deafening and I was running around from once place to the next, looking for the best angle and the best coloured balloons to photograph.

In a flash all the balloons had lifted and gone and it was quiet once again. I stood there alone for several minutes taking in the experience, overwhelmed and the adrenalin still pumping through my body.
