Hot air balloon channel crossing world record attempt 2017

In 2011 we took some pictures of the world record balloon flight - you can see the images here. One of our images was actually used on the web page for the event.

When I heard there was another attempt planned I knew that I needed to see it. Seeing the sky full of hot air balloons is an amazing spectacle. The objective as a photographer is obviously to try and tell the story of the event which means trying to get a shot of as many balloons as possible over a landmark. The image as the balloons approached Dover Castle was quite nice but they were a little too far away.

My favourite image is as they leave the White Cliffs and head over the harbour with the cross channel ferries in the foreground.

This really is a tremendous event and I am pleased that the record attempt was successful.
