Photographer's Note

Both Elio and Carmem seem to be very busy to upload the fabulous weekend we had at Torres (RS) for the International Air Balloon Festival. Thus, I continue to upload my humble contribution to the theme :)

We all received credentials that allowed us to enter the field where the ballons were released, hence the close captions.

It takes less than 5 minutes to open the bag, stretch the balloon, inflate it and warm it up and let it fly with the wind. To photograph the process is less easy than it appears to be, mostly when you have 20, 25 balloons around: you´ll never have the same composition for more than 1 second...

In the WS, the same ballon seen from the opposite angle. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by. Comments very much appreciated.
