Hot Air Balloon Festival by Chris Wraight
Hot air balloon festivals are ripe subjects for colorful photos. Chris Wraight of Southborough made sure to bring his Nikon D300 when he attended the 4th Annual Hudson Elks Hot Air Balloon Festival Aug. 9-10 in Hudson, MA.
An early morning ground fog delayed the launch because of a concern about visibility, both while traveling and landing, but eventually the balloons got airborne ...
An inside look at the balloon from the top down. The balloonist kept the balloon open for quite awhile, enabling many photographers to get this shot.
This was the first balloon to be inflated. The balloon fabric is actually red, but appeared yellow because of the flame.
Rick James of Concord, NH -- the only balloonist to fly without a basket -- catches up with his fellow flyers.
