2 minutes and 40 seconds of mass ascension on one photograph: Lake Havasu Island Balloon Festival

homemade paint can pinhole camera, paper negative, 2 minute and 40 second exposure, wet darkroom processing, scanned and digitally post processed in Photoshop (including color)
Saturday morning gave us beautiful weather for ballooning! Here is a 2-minute and 40second "snapshot" of the sunrise mass ascension that day. Two of the balloons managed to hold enough still in the field of view, for the paint can cam to capture them. The balloon on the far right was busy inflating at the time.
