TT Balloon Festival #2

Today a few more images from the TT Balloon Festival last Sunday evening. On this photo a lot of balloons were preparing to lift up in the air.

A spectacular sight was this really HUGE Oriënt Express-balloon from Germany. Because of it's immense size and unusual shape the balloon was quite unstable however and was 'just' meant for show-effect on the ground.

This photo shows 16 of the about 25 balloons on their way at 9:15 pm.

  1. Geweldig wat ze allemaal bedenken voor zo'n ballon en kunnen uitvoeren. Wat een gelegenheid om te fotograferen he.

  4. Terrific shots! I love to see these colorful balloons go up and fly around but I don't want to ride in one. That train is enormous and I'm glad it's just for show as it doesn't look too stable. Have you ridden in one of these balloons?

  6. What an amazing sight Marleen. I love to see the different types of balloons, but you would never get me up there :)
    P.s. the Spiegeltent (mirror tent) is really old and has been all over the world, we were very lucky to be able to purchase it for Perth, apparently there aren't all that many left.

  7. The thing you do "not" want to be told before boarding a balloon is that it might be slightly "unstable". :-)

  9. I love seeing the display of colours of the balloons when they are up in the air. they are so pretty. I have never been up in one but if I had the chance, I would go. Looks like fun and you'd have plenty of photo opps.
