We went to the Yavapai County Fair on Friday night where I shot these night photos of some carnival rides with my iPhone. These low light photos came out better than I expected, I like good surprises. It was a nice evening out, we enjoyed the fair. County fairs are special at night. I noticed that the crowd was very young, which was different from many gatherings in the Prescott area. Ran into a few people that we knew, typical for a small town event.
A hot air balloon at night doing a “balloon glow”, the propane burner that heats the air inside the balloon lights it up and night and makes it glow.

A hot air balloon being inflated at night. The 8 second exposure catches the balloon moving in the wind and people moving around.

Looks interesting. A 16 hot air balloon launch at 5:45 am, and a balloon glow (where the balloons inflate and glow in the dark but don’t take off) at 8:30 pm.
In the early 80’s I went on a hot air balloon ride in the Phoenix area, it was quite an experience.
