Photographer's Note

Today a photo taken at the International hot-air balloon meeting of Château d'Oex, in the Vaud's Swiss Alps.

This meeting takes place during one week every year at the end of January.

Château d'Oex is well known for its good conditions for the hot-air balloons and when sun and snow are here, its really magic.

Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones lifted off from Château d'Oex when they succeeded for the first world tour in a hot-air balloon in 1999 aboard Breitling Orbiter.

I hope you will like it.
