Oh, I love the balloons! And what great captures, Carol! So colorful! A balloon ride was one of the really fun things my daughter and I did one summer! Lovely memories! Have a beautiful day!

I always thought I'd like to take a hot-air balloon ride, but a few years ago there was a terrible accident here and I don't think I'd like to go now. But they are beautiful and tempting!

The hot air balloons are so colorful. I have always wanted to ride in one. They have such amazing designs.

These are so pretty! We had a balloon festival here in the Portland area about a month ago. I couldnt make myself get up early enough for the 5:30am launching time though :(

Have a good rest of the week!

What colorful Balloons, I love them.

I love all the interesting angles and how the colors of the balloons pop (no pun intended) against the blues and greys of the sky.

Lovely! Had I not had such a story to tell with the Blue Willow, you also would've seen balloons on my post (as we host the Kodak Balloon Fiesta each fall). Don't yo just love these balloons? Such a magical sound as they whoosh over head.

Beautiful. I remember seeing a 'balloon show' near Phoenix some years ago and being totally delighted. Great photos!

I've been in a hot air balloon only once - and it was tethered to the ground. Just the way I like it! I see them floating near here occasionally and they're a beautiful site.

I love watching hot air balloons! I think it would be both scary and fun to ride in one though!
