With the official start to Autumn upon us we look forward to some more stunning balloon flights. This is my favourite time of the year for flying. Warm and rich colours reaching far across the countryside with the landscape looking well settled in. The spring is also awesome for colour but I always think the trees and hedgerows carry a look of sparseness with their new buds and leaves. By Autumn the flora looks well established and sun blushed. As the sun lowers in the sky towards the end of the season it casts long dark shadows across the fields giving the landscape such depth and perspective. Much of the crop is now cut or soon to be and the dark richness of our Cotswold soil shows through in the ploughed fields. It’s a photographer’s paradise up there – floating at 3,000 ft with such stunning light. Don’t just take my word for it. Get yourself up there, visit Virgin Balloon Flights and get yourslef a flight voucher.
