Yes, the special shapes are pretty amazing to see. Here's are two more.

I'm sure it's just me but these balloons present somewhat of an 'unusual' profile. I think if I were designing these I might have given them some additional thought. :rolleyes:

Did you find out why he needed to do that?

No.....never did.

He came up over the trees on the back of our property, just barely clearing them. Then across a pond at which point he yelled down asking to land.

It sounds like permission or not, he may not have had a choice but to land on their property.

Apparently he was in trouble and HAD to land somewhere soon!

I had been thinking about shooting a local balloon festival with only my 85mm lens. Really try to focus on color and composition rather than merely documentation with a wide angle lens like most photographers do. Here's some of my results, it was a really interesting shooting challenge
