Whenever I think I've seen all there is to see about hot air balloons, I get a surprise.

This is beautiful, Patricia. #1580862

Oh, thank you so much, Michelle. The tough part about shooting these balloon glows is that the glow part happens quickly, lasts a short time, and not all of the balloons end up glowing at the same time! :-) #11094263
