Prepare for lift-off
Hot air balloon being inflated near Turnpost Farm. Even though it was below freezing, conditions were perfect with almost no breeze and clear skies. Note the fellow on the left holding on to the rope attached to the top of the balloon to stop it moving too much as the burner is fired.
