Labor Day Lift Off

Every Labor Day weekend (that's the first weekend in September) my home town of Colorado Springs hosts a big balloon festival. This year I went to Saturday evening's balloon glow, and was treated to strange designs like this cool crab.
There are always lots of people here to view the glowing balloons.
It's always fun to look straight up.
And of course, a closeup of the flames is mandatory!
