Everybody LOVES this stately “formal” balloon. What a high class way to get high …in the sky.
This photograph was captured at the Lycoming County Fairgrounds in Hughesville Pennsylvania, USA. It was shot on September 18th, 2011, with a Canon 30D DSLR, through a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L lens at the 90mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/500th second at f/6.3, ISO 125. The camera and lens were mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, with a Manfrotto 222 Pistol Grip head.
Many of the hot air balloons seen at the Lycoming County Rotary Fesitval return each year. They are almost like “friends” that I look forward to seeing again and again. The Flying Tuxedo never disappoints the crowd below.
