Rochefort-sur-Mer, Charente-Maritime district.
Following the series on the first output of the Hermione, a replica of the frigate La Fayette led to American insurgents.
After spending the night at anchor on the Charente, Hermione will return to a new dry dock to continue construction.
Because of tide times, the maneuver took place between 7:30 and 8:30 am.
To welcome her back in the Arsenal of Rochefort, a balloon decorated with the Marquis de La Fayette took place in the nearby meadow.

Jolie photo dans la lumière du matin, la zone près de la flamme est vraiment superbe

Balloons are usually captured high up in the air, so this photo makes a nice difference with its combination of balloon and a very beautiful scenery. It's also interesting to see the fire preparing the balloon for take-off. The light and colours are very good.
Perhaps you actually posted another photo than you had intended? I see no connection between photo and note.

Nice capture of the huge balloon. I like the atmosphere and the fade colors of the evening. Well taken.

Une composition fabuleuse, qui est rejoint par un magnifique et reposant paysage, avec cette large plaine et la beauté spectaculaire de la montgolfière, vous avez choisi un bon moment avec ces couleurs fortes comme le drapeau national et effigie de Lafayette.
Très bonne qualité d'image, la netteté est aussi grande.
Profitez d'une belle journée.

i palloni sono sempre belli da vedere, ma la colorazione di questo è proprio patriottica al massimo.
Molto bella la fiamma all'interno e particolare la scelta del taglio orizzontale.

Salut ma chere Delphine
Sorry for the delays in writing critiques, I have not been present on TE lately due to my mum's illness. But it is always such a pleasure to see your work. This is an exquisite photo, not just in terms of your choice of subject, but in the skill with which you have photographed it. The light is amazing, the colours richly rendered and the subject well-positioned slightly off-centre. The sliver of silver water in the foreground is another enticing element.
Congratulations, thanks for sharing

La Fayette a changé de moyen de locomotion! Jolie photo de cette montgolfière prête au départ.

Love the contrast of the gray sky and the bright and color hot air balloon. the glow of the flame illuminated the red very nicely and the sunset light also illuminated the scene with warm tone.
