Hot Air Balloon Fiesta , Bunnik , 2003 : a memorable event !

Post by bingo20 »

Six years ago already , but still vividly in my memory : the Hot Air Balloon Fiësta in Bunnik , which took place on August 15th , 2003 !
The taking-off of some fifteen hot air balloons of different types one after another produced - it is needless to say -a magnificent sight.
I had the opportunity to join a flight in one of them , which was operated by the crew of Kool Balloon.
Not yet being in the possession of a digital camera , but only using my old Pentax Spotmatic , it was certainly not easy to take some pictures of reasonable quality , more so since flying activities only started late in the afternoon , but nevertheless they are worth while showing , I think...
