This photograph from a balloon festival shows the initial filling of the balloons. It impressed me how close they were together, and this combined with a bright array of saturated colors made a joyful scene against the somber grey of the early morning sky. A sense of the unknown is always present, as the final destination is only guessed at, due to the sometimes-unpredictable nature of the wind. This original mode of air transport has become a popular activity for large numbers on enthusiasts, giving them the freedom of floating among the clouds.
