This is another one of my favorites from the Provo Hot Air Balloon festival. I was standing next to the balloon just as it was taking off, and got the man giving a quick wave to the crowd below. I think my next venture will be actually taking a ride in a hot air balloon … it would be a neat way to get some aerial shots of a city! :)
