This is what.................................

What 6am from my office window looked like today.....................

It is the annual day  Bristol Balloon Fiesta and every morning and evening, weather permitting hundreds of hotair ballons take off from Ashton Court and float beautifully across the Bristol suburbs. I got up and went straight into work to get these shots to show you.

Can you see the man on the motorcycle in the distance?

This is the first one I took this morning. That's my car and the back of the health centre, the balloons were just coming over and they take a while so I then went down to the front of the building to get the other shots.

I will be doing some of Shimelle Laine's cyber crop this weekend, see some of you there.


  1. I love the Balloon Festival, have been a couple of times now. How lucky to be able to see it from your work.

    Look forward to seeing your Cybercrop challenges

  2. Ah, thanks for sharing these photos - that's lovely! I remember going to the Balloon Festival with my dad, years ago. It was very exciting to see all those balloons - we didn't see them so often then, as you do now. Thanks for bringing back a nice memory for me!

  3. I would love to hot air balloon one day!

  4. We heard about it on the radio in the car and I said to the kids I bet Jo can see those balloons- and I was right :) Must be an amazing sight.

  5. Lovely photos Jo, thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes I am a member of Ravelry - I only joined a few days ago though and I already love it!

  6. Wow! What a great way to start the day!
