This week (Jan. 23rd - Jan. 31st, 2010) is the 32nd Château d'Oex Hot-Air Balloon Festival and I went there over the past weekend for the first time to take some pictures. I didn't think I would have so much fun and I really didn't think photographing balloons would be so difficult. By that I mean getting an interesting point of view or composing the picture in such a matter that it's not just a balloon in the sky.
Some flickr buddies of mine were there as well and they actually got to enter the launching area and took some really cool pictures I wish I had an opportunity to take. Maybe next time! All-in-all it was a great day, a great experience and I have to admit, I felt like a kid seeing all these balloons in the sky.
