Here are some selected shots from the Portland Hot Air Balloon Festival. During the evening, they held what is called "Nightglow". There were eight balloons tethered and lit up. When the burners are fired the whole balloon glows. It is a spectacular sight. I will post an album of pictures in a day or so.

The first shot is taken in early evening and shows the burner of a balloon in full burn. The next two shots were taken about 9:30 PM and show just a small sample of what nightglow is about

Nikon D100, Sigma 17-35mm, -1.0 exposure compensation, hand-held.

Hey Cal these are some great shots you got of the hot air balloons and the Nightglow effect. I've never been this close to one before but these pictures give a good understanding of just how much of an eye-opener they are.

Thanks Elliot. I have been to the balloon festival early in the morning. It is a spectacular sight to see all the balloons inflating and launching and to be able to stand right in the middle of it. This is the first time I have been to a nightglow and it was definitely worth seeing. There was also a great local band (Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts) playing rock music of the 60s and 70s. They are great.

Glad you have time to come around once and awhile. We miss you! I have received several suggestions for new topics whick I'll email to you.

Have a good day.
