Night Glow

This weekend we went - for the first time - to the annual Balloon Stampede at the fairgrounds in Walla Walla. They do this every year on Mother's Day and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting) 30-40 hot air balloons take to the sky at 6:30 a.m. and they float around for a few hours before touching down in various places. On Saturday night a few balloons (not sure how they choose which ones) light up on the field next to the grandstand and show off their brilliant colours. It wasn't until I downloaded this one from my phone that I realized I'd caught a couple enjoying each other's company in the light of the balloons.

I've always wanted to go to a hot air balloon festival! The lit up balloons are wonderful and that shadow is perfectly romantic!
