Another balloon photo in my series from the Citrus Classic Hot Air Balloon Festival. The balloon ascensions take place at sunrise when the wind conditions are stable and gentle. They fill the balloon with air from a fan and then use the propane fuel to get life. It was amazing to see 20 balloons take off and fill the sky. There are four hot air balloons stationed at the Santa Paula Airport from May till October for tourist rides.
Please enjoy my photo.

Ballooning is one of the things I would do someday. I'm attracted by his silence on the displacement and its beautiful colors.
Great perspective and good details.

Let's go Balooning!
Great timely capture and nice colours for a dismal morning.
Excellent filled frame image and good exposure control though i feel
with a tweak in curves to give a touch more punch.
The detail is crisp throughout.
Great effort, Congrats
