Default Balloons!

A balloon "race" I went to see with my family a few weeks ago (more of a demonstration really). They're really beautiful in the sky, but I was more interested in the preparation and goings-on on the ground.

Thumbs up

Very interesting photos. They really show all the different tasks that go into getting a balloon in the air. Well done.

Nice series of photos, love all the colours of the balloons, the last one for me great composition shooting in portrait mode capturing the ballon in the sky and people on the ground.

This is something I would love to to do and take some photos from a balloon.

.....love these Sammy and would really like sampling the 'FUDGE' nachos.

We've a large 'balloon fest' in the DFW (Plano, TX) area I've been wanting to see for years but have not.

There will be a late AUG, 2016 weekend event near me at Lone Star Park .. Grand Prairie, TX .. may will try getting there.

Thanks for posting your photos ..GOOD STUFF.

Bob

Just realized I forgot to thank everyone for their kind comments. :/

But I'm not sure I share Bob's enthusiasm for "Fudge Nachos," heh.
