Bristol Balloon Fiesta

This morning Liz and I made it to the sunrise mass ascent of the Bristol Balloon Fiesta. One balloon I always look out for is the distinctive yellow and blue of the 'Bristol' Balloon - I was fortunate enough to have a ride in this balloon a few years ago, and we went to 6,000 feet as well as touching down on water. It always flies with panache and daring. Today, it ascended higher than all the others, and a skydiver tumbled out. Here is an unusual view of this balloon:
