Heard there was a hot air balloon festival near by, so took a few hours off work and left really early in the morning with my father in law. Was really beutiful watching them, tho there wasn't that much time to shoot as they floated away pretty fast.

Hope this does well.

I don't really find hot air balloons very interesting. Ha ha...just kidding - they're ok. But, the photo itself is very interesting and the landscape is totally cool. Your focus is awesome - very sharp. It looks like there is some haloing from the edit process but living in the desert myself, I know this might be caused from dust in the distant valley. So, it's a great photo: 10

In the vast wastes of the desert, they came.

They came without warning. They came without fanfare. They came without notice.

The Balloon People from Beta Epsilon IV had begun their attack.

Lovely scenery, the different balloons offer nicely colourful points of interest. I actually also think this would be a gorgeous landscape shot without the balloons.
