“The night before I was floating on air with enthusiasm at the prospect of photographing hot air balloons drifiting through the Canberra skies. Upon waking at 6:00am, I sprung out of bed and excitedly pulled back the motel room curtain to see if the sky was clear. All I could see was fog, one which I’d describe as a pea-souper. So far from home and running to a schedule, the visions I had of blue skies dotted with multi-coloured balloons were soon drifting away. I was deflated, just like the balloons were a few hours later. What a bummer. Next time.” – Darren Stones
