The variety and intensity of colors inside a hot air balloon ….
After traditional Fall color images, I will be presenting colors of hot air balloons over the next few days.
Carolina BalloonFest began over 40 years ago as ‘The National Balloon Rally” and is well-renowned as the second oldest hot air balloon festival in the United States. Located in the Southeast, the Carolina blue skies offer a magnificent backdrop to over 50 majestic hot air balloons each 3rd weekend of October in Statesville, North Carolina.
Shown here a tangle, these balloons will eventually ascend in the sky providing a colorful spectacle.

The lantern displays were definitely amazing and awe-inspiring. Hope you enjoyed the series of images of these creative and unique lanterns.
