Hot air ballooning in Canberra

It's a very popular past time here. In summer, in the cool of the early morning, you can hear them coming for miles. First the barking starts. Dogs don't care for hot air balloons. Then there's the loud noise as they turn on the burners and gain altitude.

In winter, the balloons float in front of the monumental Telstra Tower. All colors of the rainbow, a welcome sight on a frosty, misty morning.
Here are a couple going right over my house and then a third one landing in a park nearby.
