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)

Interesting view, jet trail intersecting the classical and colorful hot air balloon with the saturated blue Vegas sky background.
Thanks for sharing,

Wonderfully colorful hot air balloon against a deep blue sky, this is very attractive and the jet trails add a further interest to the scene.
have a great weekend

very nice the presentation of the hot air balloon as dominating the scene and contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.
The passing by airplane with its white 'tail' is a bonus to the composition.
Have a good WE,Danos

Another superb combination of various "space crafts". You timed and composed this perfectly with great colors and light. It looks so simple but it's really well done.

Two for the price of one! It's delightful to see the stunning balloon in such crispiness, and massively overpowered sweep of the diagonal smoke trails behind as if piercing' thru. A shot heightened by the subtle shades of blue tones and light timely triggered full of awareness and beauty. Well done, Tfs

Fantastic adventure, the Bloon ride, Eleu.
No-lees fabulous is the colors in contrast and the timing to apply this while a jet was passing high overhead's.
Nicely spotted and collected the moment.

The orange colour of that balloon looks really intense against the blue sky. Strong colour combination. and the plane making contrail far above adds another dimension to this.

great observation and timing, your experience and skill in capturing subjects flying high has paid off once again. I like very much the way the smooth blue backdrop sets off the two subjects. Your composition is minimal but also attractive and fascinating. The chromatic contrast is most agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
