Taken a few days ago at sunset while driving around coming from another photo location I saw these and some other balloons sailing over.
Since the nearest one was going down I had to decide quickly from where to capture it.
A bit later I found out it had gone up again to get over the Waal river.

Hello Harko! What a peaceful evening scene, love how the hot air balloons slowly float over this flat grazing land trying to find a space to finally land again. Beautiful evening light. Good you stopped :))) Enjoy your Sunday, Barbara.

immagine che da sola era belissima con un fantastico cielo e le mucche al pascolo.
L'aggiunta dei palloni aerostatici la rende ancora pił bella,

The balloons are not very big but detach themselves well over the warm background
have a nice day JY

Great timing. The balloons are niceley balanced and I like how they hover over the cows who are ignoring them. The light is really beautiful.

With some pagodas and temples instead of the cows this could be Bagan/Myanmar.
Good composition and perfect sharpness.The golden tones in the sky are wonderful.

This simple picture in a well-chosen square format is really amazing.
The items (cows, balloons..) are well coupling.
The sky has a golden paint I like a lot.

I like the subtle colours in the sky and the balloons make the perfect decoration with wonderful interest. I also like the details of the grazing cows who are paying no attention to the balloons. :)

Impressive view of those balloons at sunset light. I like that warm glow, placing of cows on a row. Square framing fits well too.

What a lovely evening, a great time for hot air balloon ride for sure. Beautiful color both on the sunset and also on the grass land, amazing you got both colors nicely without over contrasting. Great details on the cows too. Excellent work.

Lovely tones from this sunset, I love it when hot air balloons are included as are the cows. As mentioned, looks peaceful indeed, excellent subtle tone and feel to the image.
