I witnessed my first hot air balloon festival this weekend. Though, no balloons were launched, unfortunately due to the weather, they did end the evening with a sunset “balloon glow” in which they inflate the balloons and fire them up for show. This was not the easiest event to shoot for sure. With the balloons moving around in the wind, and the light changing every time someone fired up their torches, it was very challenging. I got a few interesting shots, at least, and learned a lot for the next time.
