I grabbed this 2015 image off the Trophée François Ier Facebook page... with my thanks. It shows the late 15th century Château du Moulin, about 20 miles east of Saint-Aignan, near Romorantin.
Unfortunately, yesterday's flight had to be canceled because of the threat of stormy weather. Here's a local newspaper's article about the annual ballooning event, with a video shot just a few days ago up at Cheverny, about 20 miles north of Saint-Aignan.
As I said, I couldn't get any long shots of the balloons other than the ones I posted yesterday, because they were just too close to the house. But I did take a lot of zoomed images of the individual balloons as they floated by.
The balloonists were lucky to have a beautiful morning on Thursday. We had had a violent thunderstorm overnight, but the day dawned clear and calm. Yesterday storms threatened but never materialized here at Saint-Aignan. In Paris, three adults and eight children were injured when they were struck by lightning in the Parc Monceau, near the Arc de Triomphe. Rain delays were called at the French Open tennis tournament up there in the afternoon.
