Ever since I blogged about the upcoming hot air balloon fiesta in Putrajaya my blog’s hits have skyrocketted. Obviously it is a keenly-awaited event especially among photographers.
I went there on the first day on 19 March 2009. Thank God the weather was perfectly fine with blue sky and generous sunlight and yes it was not disappointing. It’s a shame though I arrived a little bit late. Upon arrival many balloons have taken off as they started inflating as early as 7.00am while I arrived at 8.00am.
However I still managed to capture a handful of balloons and the activities of inflating the balloons and I was also able to capture its surrounding.
For those who couldn’t make it on 19 March and 20 March the event is still on until Sunday. I plan to shoot again on the last day i.e. Sunday, 22 March 2008
I am delighted to share those tremendously colourful pictues with you here.
This red balloon in the shape of a coffee mug belongs to The New Zealand team.
