The rest of the balloons were already on their way. This “formal couple” had decided that it would be best to arrive fashionably late. That’s the best way to get properly noticed, you know.
This image was captured at 6:22pm on September 18th, 2010 at the evening balloon launch of the Lycoming Rotary Hot Air Balloon Festival.
The Rotary Club of Lycoming County presented this weekend event at the Lycoming County Fairgrounds in the town of Hughesville, in north central Pennsylvania, USA.
This image was shot with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR camera, with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM professional Ultra-Wide Angle lens at the 30mm focal length. The camera’s ISO was set to 100 with an aperture of f/8 and shutter speed of 1/500th second. A Monfrotto tripod and “Pistop Grip” ball head were used.
