Photo of the day: Night glow

At the end of August, we attended the annual Art and Air Festival in Albany, Oregon, which included three days of balloon events. This photo is from the opening "Night Glow," during which balloons don't lift off, but light their envelopes in sequential patterns to create a dazzling light display. This is the balloon that was closest to where we were sitting, so with a tripod, I was able to get some good shots of the balloon lit from within. I wish I'd had a wider-angle lens so I could have captured the entire balloon, but the effect is pretty remarkable nevertheless.

Here are two other images from the evening:
