Loch Leven Sunrise

Photo: Loch Leven Sunrise

I’m a member of the Edinburgh University Hot Air Balloon Club, and last Saturday we had our first flight of the academic year…

The window in the weather was quite tight and meant meeting up at 5.45am. We took off from Kinross just after first light and, as you can see from the photo, we were treated to a very nice sunrise over Loch Leven. We outran the rain clouds chasing us and enjoyed a superb flight. The landing was gentle and upright thanks to some good piloting. This was despite relatively strong winds for ballooning - at one point, at around 2000ft, we were travelling at 35mph.
