Finally the shots from Saturdays hot air balloon mass ascension at sunset at the 27th New Jersey Festival of Ballooning (Solberg Airport, Readington, NJ). If you want to see more balloons don't forget to scroll down for the rest.
The wind allowed at least some special balloons to get up even though I only got a good shot of the Darth Vader balloon. Mass ascension is a bit misleading as they all got up one by one and my main post is the only time I got two together. The other problem were the clouds who made the sun disappear often and disappear completely way before all the balloons were up but I was very pleased with the pictures I got.
Hope you'll enjoy them too.
Please consider to view it Large and on Black
Interesting that working on them in photoshop the balloons almost looked like silhouettes and after posting the picture here I had to realize that you can see much of the details of the balloons. Strange (Hmm, seems to depend on which screen I'm viewing it).
