The last weekend in August, the annual Albany Art and Air Show was being held. Granddaughter, Fiona, son, Brock, Grammy Ellie and I went out at dawn on the first day to see the balloons.
Stunning colors here Jack! I love the shadows and backlight!

Ohhh! Beautiful colors and light ! Good effect with the silhouette
23 Sep 2009 6:11am
The silhouettes make the shot. Great color.
23 Sep 2009 6:34am
@Bill Laing: Agreed.
the wonderful colours and shadows , well done jack
23 Sep 2009 6:36am
Very nice colours, but wondering if its zoomed in, with the silhouette, and the red and the yellow.. could have been a great abstract-like shot. :)
23 Sep 2009 6:55am
superbe le jeu d'ombre à travers la toile !
yeah, i love the figures! i agree, i would have moved in closer - but i guess if you did that manually - you'd end up in flames! a great shot either way!
23 Sep 2009 7:21am
@djedfre: Thank you.
Great shot, love the silhoutte of people on the other side of the balloon.
23 Sep 2009 7:53am
@Sarito: Thank you.
Love above all the center part, silhouettes behind the yellow fabric - a (wonderful) picture in itself !
23 Sep 2009 8:08am
Cool Jack!! I love the silhouettes!!!
23 Sep 2009 8:26am
@Linerberry: Thanks, Caroline.
Very interesting title to tell the truth Jack ! Air show. Phonetically, in french, air chaud (hot air) is really necessary for ballons ! Perfect then ! :-)
23 Sep 2009 8:46am
@zOOm: All you need is a couple of politicians in front of the opening!!
Perfect composition! fabulous colors in the light! Belle preparation!
23 Sep 2009 9:39am
@Mathilde Collot: Merci.
Beautiful colors and light . I love the silhouettes
23 Sep 2009 9:57am
@Nazzareno: Thank you.
Oh look at that...the silhouettes behind the ballooon are just excellent. I think this is my shot of the day!
23 Sep 2009 11:10am
@MrsAmber: Thank you.
the shadow of people behind the baloon gives another effects to the colorfully composed image.. well shot!!
23 Sep 2009 12:00pm
@Sriram: Thank you.
This is fantastic! I just love the shadows of the people behind the balloon, I think they really elevate this photo to a whole different level than if they were not there!
23 Sep 2009 12:16pm
@Tracy: Thanks, Tracy.
Excellent capture. Well spotted. those backllights are great.
23 Sep 2009 12:17pm
@xavier cardell: Gracias.
Baautiful picture . The center of picture is amazing .... I would for sure take a pic only of that crop ")))
23 Sep 2009 1:43pm
@MARIANA: The reason for not cropping just the silhouettes is that this is a story telling series and for my opening shot, I needed more than the silhouettes. I probably should have begun with another shot of the balloons being blown up and then put in the cropped silhouettes. Oh well; too late now.
23 Sep 2009 1:55pm
@Foto-aksent: Thank you.
Great shot, magnificent colors... well done !
23 Sep 2009 1:57pm
O, I see ... it is going to be a series :)) Cool, and in this case it is ok to start with this one :)) BUt this silhouette on this orange background is a killer :)))
23 Sep 2009 2:01pm
@MARIANA: I certainly agree that a crop to just the silhouettes would have made for a stronger photograph. Thanks for your kind words.
Maravillosa escena,colores y siluetas
23 Sep 2009 2:35pm
Wonderful, nice colors, i love the silhouettes!
23 Sep 2009 2:37pm

Très belle image de la préparation de la montgolfière! Superbes les silhouettes qui passent derrière la voile!
23 Sep 2009 7:07pm
Love the bright warm colors and the shadows that are cast against the balloon. Helps give perspective to the balloon's overall size.

I like the silhouettes which we can see through the balloon.
24 Sep 2009 12:19am
Looks like a bag of hot air. The colours are wonderful. Have you ever gone up?
24 Sep 2009 12:23am
@Michael Rawluk: Twenty years ago, Ellen and I were given a balloon ride out of Sedona for an anniversary gift. Great views of the red rock country. As a part of the package, we came down in a beautiful spot and had an elegant lunch with linen, crystal, silver, wine, the works!
I got a feeling we're going to see some fabulous balloon shots. That's not say this isn't a fine shot. Great shadows on the inside of the balloon. Nicely seen and photgraphed.
24 Sep 2009 3:12am

Great COlor..... Good Job

I didn't make it here yesterday, but what a wonderful, up close and personal image, Jack! Bravo!
24 Sep 2009 10:53am
Really nice, warm colors... and I love the silhouettes! Fantastic!
24 Sep 2009 12:59pm
How cool the silhouettes and colorful balloon. Not everyday (unless you are a ballonist) can you have this opportunity for a shot. Excellent.
24 Sep 2009 3:31pm
Another stunning shot! Those "people shadows" are wonderful! Excellent!
24 Sep 2009 3:50pm
AMAZING color!! i love the shadowed silhouettes of the people on the nylon surfaces of the balloon!! LOVE it!
