Photographer Notes:
First time I saw anything like these two balloons the pilots had no baskets instead they sat on a small seat. The one on the right side comes down after the ride is over by letting the air out of the balloons one at a time until he is back on the ground. I didn't see him land but everything must have gone as planned because the next day he went up again.

Thanks Linn & Tom for your comments I could not believe my eyes when I saw that guy going up with just those balloonsI used my zoom to the max to get this shot they just continued to rise as high as the regular hot air balloons with the baskets. Yikes not for me I rather stay on the ground and take the pictures.
