Canberra Balloons

A beautiful day to see the balloons taking off from in front of the old parliament house. There was a surprisingly large crowd on this Canberra Day, with families and photographers gathering for the sight.  

I tried to stay mobile, capturing the action from various angles. Enjoy the photos below.
