The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is part of a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. On November 21, 1783, in Annonay, France, the first untethered manned flight was performed by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d'Arlandes in a hot air balloon created on December 14, 1782 by the Montgolfier brothers. Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than just being pushed along by the wind are known as airships or, more specifically, thermal airships. (From Wikipedia)

Attractive hot air balloon, in the darkness it looks like glowing fire, well captured and presented

Fully lit ballon, impressive view on, Eleu.
I recon the hot air taken by wind to the right side of picture, as it has blured area (near the generator).
Beautifully contrast to the morning darkness.

A really magical light here with the flames from the gas burner illuminating the big balloon. A very attractive picture!

It's a much stronger image full-framed hot air balloon in superb brilliant colors and stunning against the dark night. So much to the beauty with wonderful shades and the glow has caught the baloon nicely. Simply georgous captured to perfection. Well done, Congrats

We have the same passion
Good lights management in the black time
You should use a tripod or a sharp filter.

a lovely picture, not very sharp but I love the way the colourful balloon fills the frame and the scene with the people gathered around the basket is very attractive. The warm and mild light that defines the balloon's shape, patterns and colours against the night sky is very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Let's imagine many of those silk buds blooming simultaneously high in the skies at pink hour for a feast dedicated to the young at heart!!
Quite an eye-catcher adorned of "warm colors"!
