    It depends very much on which way the wind is blowing. The suspension bridge will be shut during the balloon fiesta, so that won't be an option. This morning the balloons were drifting over towards Bedminster Down, so that would have been a good vantage point. I also saw many photographers on Cumberland basin and Cumberland Road.

    Bedminster Down (by the cemetery) is usually a very good place. You will catch them from there almost regardless of which way the wind bows.

    Have fun. :-)
