The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. On November 21, 1783, in Paris, France, the first untethered manned flight was performed by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d'Arlandes in a hot air balloon.
Every Morning over Goreme in Cappadocia you can see a display of hundreds of balloons rising into the air.

Hi Wanda. Unexpectedly you chose B&W, probably for greater impact and visual contrast. I can see it in colour in my mind so nothing is lost and something gained in these repetitive upside down teardrops. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Une photo intéressante en N&B, le résultat est d'un bon graphisme.

Excellent shot. A rare chance to see the view of so many airborne balloons in one shot on which the leader acts as a strong eye pointer into the whole scene. Minus the colours, it's the mono version which really makes this image, bold enough where focus of attention is centred around the identical shapes, which carries the weight of this shot, floating around almost evenly spread out across the space lends really good visual impact. It's seamlessly executed shot, very well done indeed. Congrats
