Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at the Special Shapes Balloon Glodeo event during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, a week-long annual event in early October. Every so often the announcers do a countdown, then call out "All Burn!" at which point all the balloons turn on their burners. The glowing balloons then light up like lightbulbs.

They only run the burners for a few seconds at a time (they're not trying to take off), so it's tough to get a good picture. I got lucky this time! Coolpix 950, manual shutter 1/15th second. Crop and resize only.
