36th annual Snowmass Balloon Festival

A few weekends ago I headed up to Snowmass to check out the 36th Annual Snowmass Balloon Festival.  I’ve only jumped out of a hot air balloon once and it was an amazing experience.  But this was more about seeing lots of balloon all right next to each other.  Between the evening glow session where they just fired up the burners and inflated the balloons to actually launching them in the early morning hours attempting to capture that still air it was an amazing experience to see that many, balloons that close together.  For a photographer, photographing balloons is almost too easy.  They always launch early in the morning because of the favorable wind conditions and at the same time for us, it’s that magic hour of the day when the light is warm and just begging you to take a picture.

With all of that said, here are a few of my favorites from the session.  If you’d like to SEE THE ENTIRE GALLERY CLICK HERE.
