39 Colourful and Uplifting Photos of Hot Air Balloons

Article from Light Stalking

Hot air balloons are such a great subject for any outdoor photographer. Usually the colour richness and contrasts make for eye-popping effects that are difficult to find elsewhere and the fact that you have to shoot in the golden hour when balloonists are usually most active makes the subject even more spectacular. These photos show just what can be done with such a great subject.
