Fantastic capture Steve! Just a few nights ago I was reviewing some old 35mm slides I took of a balloon launch 10 -15 years ago.

Soft early light creates the atmosphere for the colourful balloons.

Did you make a ride??

@Riccardo: No, I was just on the ground.
A very interesting view of all these balloons that rise. Excellent framing and beautiful sky.
Have a good day.

I've never had the bravery to go up in one of these, but I certainly admire their graceful beauty as you have shown it here.

Landing is much more fun.. When we did this in Belgium.. finding a place to land with the wind condition was quite difficult.. it took a while before we landed on a farm field.. good fun.
How many balloons were there?

@Sarito: This is a very small event in a very small town in Eastern Washington. There were expected to be about 35 balloons although I didn't count them.
Can't wait to see all of these colours floating in that sky - nice series so far.

Exciting moment once they all take to the sky!
7 Dec 2012 10:39am
I like how each balloon is in a different stage of readiness. Nice sky too.
7 Dec 2012 11:02am
Nice, do we get a shot from up there? I guess they don't just let anyone take a ride though:)
