Balloon Channel Crossing | World Record Attempt | Kent Photographers

This morning we ventured to Lydden circuit to witness a spectacular site. Fifty plus hot air balloons attempting to break a world record for crossing the English Channel. After the first few took off we raced to the cliffs but sadly got there just too late. We got a few nice images but I can't help thinking it would have been nice if it had coincided with a wedding. We could have got some great Bride and Groom portraits :-)

These pictures and others are available to purchase from our online gallery.

Please take a look at the Kentonline which featured one of our photos
