This morning I had to drive to Derby for work so was expecting to be struggling to find a picture for today. The weather was hazy to start with, but the sun soon broke through and the day turned into a scorcher.
I happened to stop just outside Derby and took the picture of the power station cooling towers below; they seemed to fit the hot and hazy mood of the day.
This evening however brought the best picture of the day; the balloon went nicely in range of a long lens and hung lazily in the sky so that I could get some sharp images.
The livery on the balloon always helps of course.... A tune sprang to mind ... "Hot Air on a G-string" I think it is called.
