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)

This will de a noiseless but colorful take-off. I like the light and shadow combination in this image with well saturated colors. The sharpness is very good.

Lumière et couleurs remplissent bien la composition.
Un bel et intéressant alignement prêt au décollage.

Hello Eleu - I think I might call this one 'Fly Me to the Moon'! Lovely early morning light bounces off the balloons and shows off their curves and colours beautifully. A wonderful way to see the landscape, floating almost silently above the world. Lovely shot, clean, clear and crisp. Warm regards rosemary

A very nice line up of the air balloons getting ready for lift off.
Congratulations on your interesting notes.
I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to heights so I decline from being too adventurous.
The colours are great...

Beautiful, colorful balloons on the ground are still waiting for the signal to take off into the sky. I'd like to fly a hot air balloon. Wonderful colors and sensational image quality.

Good idea to have included the tree and the moon in your frame, like the turquoise sky also
Good sharpness, contrast, light shadow
Have a nice We

Composition is strong, I like the fact you have a clear foreground and background. Excellent clarity and sharpness. Good that you left the small full moon in the frame.
abmdsudi (26199) 2013-01-27 18:52
It must be a wonderful sight, stunning and the ballons just add something extra to an already beautiful image. Great shot of some brilliant colors lined up across the frame form such a fine view point. The side warm light adds so much to the beauty with wonderful textures and shades. It's timely taken to perfection, a rather brilliant sporting image. Well done, Congrats

The branches are helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the hot air balloons. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
macjake (39207) 2013-01-30 16:59
You're a lucky man...i have yet to really come across an opportunity to photograph hot air balloons.
I like the american one the most, the colors seem to work the best.

This is one of more attractive photos on your last page. Outstanding composition, I like the moon on the sky. Like a target for the pilots. Excellent colors.
Have a great week!

Marvelous sight, as the baloons were about to t/o at dawn.
Position on the edge of shaded area in picture, the sun was just up to lighten the ballons in their fabulous colors.
