The Mondial Air Ballons is the world's largest meeting of hot air balloons. Since 30 years and every two years, several hundred pilots join in Chambley Bussières nearby Metz, France. Take-offs happen in the early mornings and late afternoons. These are magical moments where you can see hundreds of hot air balloons taking off simultaneously in a surge of shapes and colors. For those who have the opportunity to go there the event will be one of the highlights of your summer. The video on the right will give you a good overview of the event.
I am fortunate to have been an accredited photographer for the past three seasons. Below some photos of these unforgettable moments.
