Heading down the Gold Coast this morn and I was tracking 2 hot air balloons along the highway near Nerang. I decided to pull into a side street near Carrara Stadium to get some shots and was lucky enough to end up where the recovery team had parked for the landing.

This was one of the first of the balloons to touch down.

Then this one followed….
