Cooking on Both Burners

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 29 November 2012 in Sport & Recreation.

I decided to hangout around one balloon crew to see how they got things set up. Of course, the lady pilot had to test her burners, too. These flames are not too large.

One day hot-air balloons crossed above my house and I heard the breath of their flame before seeing them. Magnificent enormous candle and I like these silhouettes in the blue night !

Great close-up shot of this flame! Takes me back to my college days and the local pizza restaurant would have a hot air balloon in the Homecoming parade and purposely light the flame to hear the crowds cheer.
