After last nights trip through to Strathaven for the 'Evening Glow' event I ventured through early this morning to see the balloons in flight.
This is one of these events I've had in my bucket list and so glad I went through today.
Major fun chasing around watching the various balloons and trying to anticipate where they may eventually land.
Everyone I spoke with was very helpful and friendly and obviously enjoying the day.
The weather of course makes or breaks an event like this and this morning we were blessed.
Happy back on Earth
Down to Earth
Having enjoyed the morning session so much, it was back through again for the evening session.
I wasn't disappointed as you can see from the photographs.
