My Year in Photos – November 6th – "Twisted fire starter!", originally uploaded by henweb.
We decided to let off one of the Chinese lanterns which I’d bought for our trip to Hereford tonight, with mediocre results. We never got a chance to set them off in Hereford, due to the fire-risk they pose in an area full of hay barns – so we let this one off in the heart of Reading instead…! It wasn’t until we let it go that I realised I’d spotted several low-flying helicopters buzzing around the skies over Reading earlier on – thankfully none were in the lanterns flight path though, or I could have been in trouble!
