I went to Provo with my family to participate in the Freedom Festival Balloon event on the 4th. My daughter in laws dad has several balloons he flies and he was at the festival. The unfortunate thing is that the weather kept them from actually flying. They went through the process of blowing them up, heating them up and taking them down and putting them away anyway. I’ve captured lots of pictures of the process and thought I would share a few here. It was early in the morning and light wasn’t that good so I shot all of these at ISO 800 to make sure I could keep the shutter speed up. I varied the aperture as I thought appropriate for depth of field. I just couldn’t help giving some of these an HDR look.
