Each hot air ballooning season (March-November) here at Virgin Balloon Flights we hold a photo competition for passengers and members of the public who capture our balloons in all their beauty.

This year we’ve had some absolutely brilliant entries; we’ve included all photos that have been posted on our Facebook wall, tweeted to us and sent by email. Nicola Ferguson from Daffodil Waves Photography took on the difficult task of whittling it down to the just 10 entries. Here’s a look at the final 10 that caught her professional eye:

To choose ultimate winner, a competition will go live tomorrow on our Facebook page to give you the opportunity to vote for your favourite photo. The winner can choose their prize of either £100 Virgin Experience Days gift card which can be spent on a photography experience or any other experience or a champagne balloon ride for two (worth £249). The competition will end on 20th December at 17.30pm and the winner will be officially announced shortly after.

You too have the opportunity to win just by having your say – when you vote, you will be entered into our prize draw to be in with the chance of winning a fantastic prize yourself.
