Light The Night

Balloon Glow 2012-09-14 6

A few more from Friday night's balloon glow in Forest Park. It's a good thing I'm tall so I could shoot over the heads of the mob on the park's central athletic field.  The third picture is the Energizer Bunny balloon, sponsored by Energizer batteries, whose headquarters is here. Gee whiz fact: the silly thing is taller than the Statue of Liberty. In this image, it gets an application of the Bunny Bottom Burner.

The actual balloon race was yesterday. The sky was a uniform gray so the images will not be brilliant, but we'll get to some.

Sure seems like a fun event. I really like the top photo with the crowd and the blueish sky.

I love the concept of a balloon glow. The effect is spectacular. I'd never seen anything like it. THanks for the photos.

Fabulous! I think we saw some of the same Balloons in Colorado Springs Labor Day weekend.

Your photos are soooo sharp. How did you get that effect? We didn't get the same results shooting a higher ISO?
