Shane Rattenbury has announced a competition to take the best photo of a hot air balloon, while riding an ACTION bus. Any of our regular photographers keen?

“The passenger who takes the best photo of a hot air balloon while travelling on an ACTION bus will win a balloon ride for two with Balloon Aloft.

“To enter, simply ride with ACTION during the Balloon Spectacular, take a few balloon snaps from inside a bus and upload the best photo along with the bus number on ACTION’s Twitter page with #bfab. Entries can also be submitted via an online entry form.

“There will be balloons of different shapes and sizes for passengers to capture. Keep an eye out for the balloons brought in from across the globe, including a peacock, turtle and Simba the lion.

“The balloons could be photographed while launching, flying next to a national attraction or icon, landing, or as a cluster of balloons in the sky. Just remember the judging panel will be looking for creativity and flair,” Mr Rattenbury said.

A mate of mine used to pull a condom over his head and using his nostrils, inflate said condom as a pub party trick. Would that count as a balloon? And would they kick him off the bus?
