Chasing Balloons...

It's 6.00am, it's cold and dark and the organizers have decided that the conditions are near right for balloon flying.
A convoy of cars leave the Renmark Sports' Oval and head for Yamba's Roadhouse.

Inflating the balloon

In the middle of nowhere, in an open paddock, the pilots and their helpers make ready for their flight.

Nearly there

As the sun slowly rises behind us , the pilots are making their final check.

Up, up and away.
