I took this image of 4 hot air balloons at 8:20pm at the Citrus Classic Balloon Festival in Santa Paula, California. The balloons were being inflated for the evening glow. The Canon 5D MK3 did a remarkable job of capturing these colors in such low light.

It was a great show. You've got to put it on your calendar for next year. My daughter and I are definitely going back.

What a perfect Summer for shooting Hot Air Balloons (am heading out this afternoon for my 5th event this year!)

But, finding and capturing the pale and distant Moon in the window formed by the Brilliant patterns of the balloons is genius, Robert! Congratulations for the POTD.

Bob, Congrats on PTD! I was sorry to miss the show this year. I went the prior two years, and the balloons did not go up either year because of fog.
