I missed this POTD! A spectacular image and so beautiful! I love hot air balloons; they are so colorful. I have always wanted to go up in one. You are lucky to be able to go see this. I have searched around here and there are no balloon shows around this area. I would love the opportunity to shoot these. Congrats on your finalist and POTD! #8298226
