Hot air balloons are such a great subject for any outdoor photographer. Usually the colour richness and contrasts make for eye-popping effects that are difficult to find elsewhere and the fact that you have to shoot in the golden hour when balloonists are usually most active makes the subject even more spectacular. These photos show just what can be done with such a great subject.

    Thank you for sharing, these photos are amazing, I grew up around the balloon fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico and now I am inspired to go back again to shoot photos.

    All the photos are amazing, very colorful. I love adventure sports. Hot air ballooning is something which I have never tried. After seeing the pics it has become my burning desire to try atleast once in my life. Thanks for posting.
