Hovering above the water

After a disappointing start to the Canberra Balloon Spectacular yesterday it was great to see the balloons take off today. There were lots of people on the water to welcome the balloons as they touched down and then slowly floated upwards again.

I managed to take over 200 photos this morning. If they had waited another 30 minutes, we would have had much better light.

Air balloons never fail to grab our attention! This giant red orb has cast quite a big reflection on the water.

Beautiful capture!
There was a kite festival nearby yesterday, but unfortunately I had other commitments and couldn't go :(

Another great shot! They are so dependent on the conditions being just right. You can't always go by the lighting. But I think your pictures are spectacular!
