One of the biggest hot air balloons gatherings takes place in France, every two years: the Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons. This year's edition was held last July 26th and boasted the presence of 329 aircrafts that filled the skies with multi-colored dots. It was their biggest take off ever! A few photographers captured some amazing pictures from the event.
They are Daniel Guffanti, mortimer? and Gaston Batistini, and they have posted their pictures on Flickr. Here is a selection of the best photos. The panoramic photos are extraordinary and they give you the best idea of what a horizon completely filled with balloons would look like.
