    Next time I'll try to be the guy with the "best spot".
    But it was crazy expensive to ride one of those things - arround 400$ an hour :p

    The fourth one (with the church in it) threw me for a loop for a bit. I was trying to figure out how the balloon in the picture was casting the shadow. I had to check out the shadows on the trees before I understood what was happening.

    Thx to all :p

    I dont remind if there was a vodka balloon, but it's possible since there were so many (hundreds).
    I didnt have the chance to photograph them all...

    Cheers
