Sighting hot air balloons isn’t too unusual in the area where I live. Seeing them while standing on my balcony though is, especially this close.
There were five of them and as it was already getting dark (these are from Friday evening) they were landing. They were close enough that I could see and hear the blue one opening their fire a few times to gain a bit of height until they came down in the field behind a few trees.
The bobble behind the trees is the blue balloon while landing.
I just love watching hot air balloons. For me there’s still something magical about them (same btw with Zeppelins). I recently started a ‘101 things to do in 1001 days’-list and flying with a zeppelin is on that list. Can’t make my mind up about a hot air balloon, mostly because of my weird issue with heights, where the height isn’t the problem but the firmness of the ground I’m standing on is.
