Festival of Balloons, Phoenix, Az.

Daily Photo:

You show up at sunrise with everyone firing up the torches and preparing for the mass uprising of dozens of balloons. I knew little about hot air balloons except I always wanted to photograph them taking off. A skilled navigator actually has some control over where they can end up, and in the case of these balloons, they were preparing for a contest of reaching a targeted bulls eye down wind at a pre-determined spot. I was amazed they could actully do that. Only control they have is rising and falling and catching the layers of air currents. Pretty cool!
