Silly Tuesday risk taking.

Now if they are not careful, centuries of history could be burned to the ground :-)

This is another silly shot from the hot air ballooning event on Palace Green in Durham. You might have got a wonderful aerial view of Durham Castle and cathedral if only they had managed to get the balloons off the ground. Unfortunately the winds got up and put a stop to all of the fun.

Hermosa vista del castillo, de la maravillosa ambientación verde, del público
y el accidente con el globo..que no logró empañar el feliz momento. *****
Buenos y felices días.

I'm used to seeing strong blue flames from theses burners. This flame seems to have ignited above the burner.
