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 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 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)

The flame lightened the inner side of the baloon in a fine orange tone.
Superbly collected the flame itself on mid-picture.
Impressive moment, and i can imagine the unique roar of the fire as it was blasted.
Have a nice Sunday,

This is an interesting shot to complement yours, and others', photos of balloons elegantly flowing through the air, reaching for the sky. The low POV gives us a fascinating look at the fire which gives the colors a beautiful warm tone.

Open flame is fascinating, I'm always afraid that it will burn the whole balloon, beutiful photo from an interesting POV, great management of light

A good low POV to show the flame heating the air in the balloon. The red amplifies the heat sensation and the two figures add sense of tension before lift off.

Wonderful tight framing with a superb warm cold color contrast between the fiery red hot air balloon and the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and superb upward pov and framing. The people add scale and context. A good decisive moment to catch the jet of gas. Tfs!

Stimulating up close action shot of the balloon firing up in the early morning light.
I hope Las Vegas someday has a hot air balloon festival to attract participants and visitors to its ideal climate.

For a pyromaniac like myself, this is a feast to the eyes. Nice close up of the preparations going on in the gondola.
