Flying High

By JuBarney
I feel like balloons today and - after some sleep - hope that I shall feel like flying high! This chap is being towed by the speed boat and was almost too far away for much detail. I wonder if the tow line is dropped when the balloonist reaches a certain height?!! They were taking off from a sand bank out there so it was hard to see what was happening.

The weather is better again down here in Cornwall but it means watering all the plants again too!

Great image Ju.
The tow line on these things is extremely long you did well to capture the whole thing. GrinGrin

Superb capture Ju. I dont think its a balloon Ju I believe is a parachute that relies upon being towed by the boat to get forward motion and then it will rise.and remain up until the boat comes to a halt.
Looks like great fun. I would love to try it.!!!!
