Blown Away!

Labor Day Weekend, 2014. Colorado Balloon Festival. A friend of mine had a friend who owned a hot air balloon. I asked if it would be possible to get a closer look before he took off. I know there is a Physics explanation, but it astounds me how with just a little hot air, an enormous balloon can float so lightly and gracefully through the sky.
SONY DSCI kept peering into the balloon as it inflated and seeing the shadows move back and forth. I don’t remember taking this photo at the time, but seeing it afterwards left me a bit giddy. The man seems otherworldly, like he was passing between realms.
