Good capture Gil, he had to put fire to it as he was coming down fast - you can tell by the way the tether rope is going up and not hanging down. Love the colors. Congratulations.

I'm so glad you got to see a balloon festival, Gil! I've never been so lucky. The place we lived before we moved to the country, we would occasionally see a balloon go overhead, and even do touchdowns in the pond at the bottom of the hill, but I never got to see large numbers of them like this. Never been up in one either, though I'd love to go. Very colorful series!

Update: Congrats on a quick AC!
