    Thank you Paul.

    Didn't you go there? I met only a few photogs that i know over there. But I only went on the first day and the last day.

    These are the last day pictures on Sunday. Although the morning weather was not so flattering we were blessed with wonderful lighting and very clear weather in the evening which made everybody very happy especially the photogs and the participants.


    The balloons started taking off at about 8.00am on Sunday which was the last day.


    The pilot pumped in the hot air


    The pattern on the ceiling of the balloon became distorted cause by diffraction of light by the hot air

    Here are some of my mine to share.
    (Taken on first day evening).

    On seeing the word 'Papillon' (Butterfly) imprinted on the balloon
    immediately brought back memories of one of my favourite movies
    starring two hollywood giants Steve Mcqueen and Dustin Hoffman.
    Read the bestseller book too!













    The nescafe balloon that just refused to fly. After trying for quite some time, the crew finally abandoned its flight as the evening gets darker.




    Cheers!
