So pretty.
Looks like a Dr. Seuss convention!!!!
it looks so good that photo i wish i could have seen it but oh well
Beautiful photo. The largest hot-air balloon gathering in the world is actually in Albuquerque, NM every October though. Some mornings over 600 balloons launch!
That's right, Albuquerque is where it's at! I grew up there!
Its very nice to c the sky filled with colorful baloons
That's awesome...beautiful
Reminds me Of our annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta! here in New Mexico... Stunning Picture!
wow.. wow.. looks kewl ♥ :)
So pretty thank you for posting this! In US we have a gathering in New Mexico annualy!
Beautiful picture. Incorrect title. The largest gathering of Hot Air Balloons occurs every October in Albuquerque, NM. It is so large they restrict the amount of balloons participating to 750. It peaked at 1,019 balloons requiring the restriction to 750.

What an amazing and beautiful sight!
Fucking balloons!!!!!
AMAZING WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Makes me wonder how they handle collisions...
Lovely! My dream is to ride in one of these. I've wanted to for as long as I can remember.
probley the most amazing picture i have ever seen
Surreal. Lucked out with an amazing sky to accompany the event! Bravo!!
To me, this seems like the Software Co Coraldraw's photo montage put on their latest software.
Fantastic photo. I miss flying Balloons so much. Didi it a lot when I was in high school when I lived in the Mid-Western United States. Nothing else like it.
Awesome, but still not as big as Albuquerque's. Sorry, hot air bro-loon enthusiast dude.
Don't wanna cause a tear in yer balloon, but THE largest gathering (in one isolated location) happens annually HERE in ABQ, New Mexico^^ A number of records were officially reset last year with our mass ascension seein' record #s as I'm sure the 'balloon glow' and international meets/competitions saw the largest attendance ever,? I could* be mistaken, but 32+ years of livin' here might speak for somethin' =] Thanks for the amazin' photo; I missed the last gatherin' ;o
If I wasn't such a chicken I would love to do that looks amazing :)
Def. not the largest in the world, perhaps in Europe...Idaho is home to an event that boasts over 25,000 hot air balloners @ once.
you didnt happen to photoshop the balloons at the bottom... they seem to disappear into thin air.. the one next to the red/yellow/black one. as well as the one next to the purple/black one.
"The largest hot-air balloon gathering in the world, Chambley, France"

Nope. Not true, but they're cool anyhow.
Absolutely beautiful and very enchanting ;-)
We used to have one when I was a kid, Nice shot
Better to see balloons rising in the sky than bombs raining down. Peace.
Love V.
i want to ride one of those!!!
Awesome, although that picture is quite old actually.
This pic is so beautiful, that I'm gonna do all three. Great!

Reminds me of the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque NM.

Beautiful. Chambley is the largest air balloon meeting in the world... more than 1000 balloons versus 750 in NM... Everything is bigger in the US, but the Air Balloon festival ;-)

Oh? Hot air balloons. That explains it. Here I had read just "largest hot-air gathering" and was somewhat perplexed when I didn't see a picture of Congress!
Great gathering I would love to see something like that even the one in N.M.
The curved runway is interesting. Pilot's challenge, huh?
That is very DUMB i know what cool is that is not cool
Balooms balooms.

How do they avoid collisions?
Still, I'll take the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta over that any day. :)
This is a FANTASTIC picture. I love the lighting, perspective, and subject. well done.

The Very Best Ballon shot I've ever seen!
