There is something about the preparation for a hot air balloon launch. Especially the last moment of tension with the balloon pulling on the taut tether rope. It’s all in contrast to the serenity of the actual take-off. VH-BKB is seen here just before launch.
This picture was caught at the Mansfield Hot Air Balloon Festival in April 2004, with a HP645.
