Cool pic - I like that you managed to get the flame in there too. It looks like an advertisement for Corel Software - they used to have these balloons as a brand identity.

Nice grab there Paukl!

i was there when there were taking off and managed to get the shot while the balloon was relatively close to the ground.

Its a race they take off in the balloons with the bikes and land at a designated area then the bikers race back to the starting point
