Imagine the spot that inspired Colin Hindle
As you take the Aerial Art Tour above Pooley Bridge try to identify the spot where Colin Hindle captured the landscape as seen from his hot air balloon ride.
More from Colin Hindle
I was born in Blackburn, Lancs in 1966.
The balloon ride that inspired my chosen painting was on a beautiful late August evening. What I didn’t know is that the only thing the pilot can control is the height, he has no influence over where the balloon goes, so I was very lucky that it flew serenely south-east across the Eamont providing magnificent views that couldn’t be had otherwise…. We landed with a thump an hour later at the foot of Haweswater.
