Your pictures: Flying high
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week, it is "Flying high".
Wendy Wythe: "Shadows cast during a hot-air balloon flight above the Namib Desert in Namibia."
Christopher Hoyle: "At an air display in Blackpool, the weather was great and I managed to get close enough to take a photo or two. Their precision was awe inspiring."
Gordon Bain: "Flying high on the Quiraing, on the Isle of Skye, on a beautiful August afternoon."
Laurie: "This picture was taken on my 80th birthday, over Busselton, in western Australia. I could see the curvature of the Earth from up there and was flying high both physically and emotionally. What a fantastic experience."
Ben Morgan: "I love the perspective that you get of the mountains when seen through the drone's camera. The altitude changes the light and the way that the shadows play on the high ground. I also love flying around the coast. You can get a seagull's eye view of features like this lighthouse."
Janet Ratcliffe: "A cold blustery summer kite festival at Morecambe promenade, Lancashire. Apart from being freezing, the conditions were perfect for flying kites."
Clare Irons: "Watching the famous Red Arrows as they climb the heights over Blackpool Pleasure Beach."
Emma Mae Beavis
Emma Mae Beavis: "View from Purdown Hill of balloons taking off and flying over Bristol City Centre."
