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)

A very colorful image with these balloons in the morning light giving warm colors over the blue sky. I like the checkered pattern of the first one.

The warm light of the early sun has given the balloons marvellously deep, vibrant colors. It must be a great spectacle to watch them being prepared for taking off, and then rising to the sky one after another. The large shaded foreground confirms the early hour. My limited experience of deserts tell me that it may still have been a bit chilly in the shade.

Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the yellow red balloons and the blue sky, with superb sharpness and framing. The people add scale to the huge hot air balloons. Excellent shadow detail and a great weekend to you!

hello Eleu, beautiful shot of the start of the balloons. I didn't know that you can fly over las Vegas.
When I was in Cappadocia I considered a flight with my friend. We were not sure if we should go, we were afraid, specially I have vertigo, and it was quite expensive. But the problem was solved - there was strong wind and no balloon flights :(.
Splendid picture, fantastic colours at sunrise.
Happy New Year!

Those hot air ballons are glowing sublime in the warm late afternoon sun. It makes one want to go for a ride with them indeed.
I wish you a very happy new year.

The early morning light and its shadow have done the job of emphasizing your subject for you. This was definitely a Kodak moment in Kodak colors.
