Bristol balloon fiesta 2009

WOW! My first daily deviation, I knew this photo had potential!

I am overwhelmed by all the kind feedback!

Me and the wife go to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta every year and the 2009 event was one of the best for weather, this photo was taken at an early morning 6AM launch and the sky was clear and the wind was so gentle that the balloons just circled the launch field for over an hour without drifting away, it was truly magical!

This balloon was of course made to promote the movie UP! the pilot could not see anything inside the house so was guided via radio by a pilot in another balloon!

Suggester says, "A great capture of the perfect moment that tells a story. Really like the composition and DOF, as well how detailed this work is. Great work."

The color, clarity (so much of the balloon is in focus) and contrast are wonderful. A very belated congrats on the DD :D
