Night Glow

A few balloons from the recent Albany Art & Air festival. More balloons in flight soon to follow. (I love this time of year!)

How stunning these balloons are. I used to watch the 'balloon glow' in Colorado Springs during their festival, and have missed it so much since moving back to Oregon.

Looks like I'm going to have to get out more often!

What a breathtaking capture, Perry! I love the balloons and particularly these night shots! Terrific colors! I love balloon flights, but haven't taken one in a long time and never at night and I would love that! Have a great week!

These remind me of gigantic light bulbs all aglow! What a magical feeling it must be to experience this in person. :)

I love hot air balloon festivals. I posted some balloon glows early in June and even won a photo contest with one of them! We're going to Albuquerque the first of October to see the grand-pappy of them all! I simply can't wait!!! You night shots are SUPER!

Great shots. We have a major balloon festival in my town every year on Labor Day, and the balloon glow is always one of my favorite parts.

What a spectacle the inflated balloons make in the darkness and what fun to have a dawn ride.

The lighting really enhances the colorful patterns of the balloons. These are great! :)

Oh, MY! This photo just fills my eyes--which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Scott said...

Night shots of the bright colorful balloons are always wonderful. The silhouettes of the crowds of people add to the atmosphere and your composition here is right on. In your post on my blog you asked if the caves were closed. The answer is no and I have a couple of shots I'll share soon from inside the "Indian Tunnel" and probably "Beauty Cave". Thanks for stopping by.
