A continunation of the BalloonFest 2004.
I seperated these to be more download friendly.
Very nice, I think the last one's my favorite mainly because of the composition.
Well, apart from the fact that hot air balloons are always some very nice photographic objects because they are so colourful, so large and therefore impressive, and because they usually only start up into the air in very nice weather (yet another factor in favour of wonderful colours), I like the first of this little series best since it shows us an aspect that does not get captured in photos that often: the start-up stage. I like all the action captured in that one and the fact that the fire is on to heat the air inside the balloon. This is not to say that the others are NOT nice... NO! Erm.. Yes: they are .
the first and last are also my favorites for the reasons mentioned.
Did you know that the flame in a hot air balloon is nearly 60 feet in length, but it is so hot and burns clean so you can only see about the first 15 feet of it. Something neat I learned over the weekend.
Oh, that first one rocks! I love it!
