Luckily I happened to be in the right place at the right time. My husband and myself were visiting the Bodiam Castle in the East Sussex when we saw from one of the windows on the ground floor several hot air balloons being launched just outside. We rushed upstairs while they were still very close to take these shots.
The castle was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, who used to be a knight of Edward III.
Camera used: Nikon D60 with Nikon VR18-55mm lens.
