The 2nd Putra­jaya Inter­na­tional Hot Air Bal­loon Fiesta 2010 was held from 18–21 March 2010 at Putra­jaya, Malaysia.

Colour­ful hot air bal­loons ready to take off!

I went to the fes­ti­val with Ted for two con­sec­u­tive days to take pho­tos. Once on Fri­day morn­ing and once again on Sat­ur­day evening.

We got to know on Fri­day that only 200 pho­tog­ra­phers were allowed to enter the guarded area to take pho­tos every session.

So we went there again on Sat­ur­day around 4:30 PM to queue up. We waited for almost an hour before they opened the gate for the pho­tog­ra­phers to go in.

A small por­tion of pho­tog­ra­phers in action.

But it was all worth it when we got to take pic­tures up-close of the crew while they were busy get­ting the bal­loons up.

The pilot is blast­ing fire into the bal­loon to warm up the air.

Inside one of the bal­loons shot from the top.

On of the crew clos­ing the top of the bal­loon once it’s filled with air.

Hot air balloon.

More hot air balloons.

Even more hot air balloons.

That’s me camwhor­ing with one of the balloons.

There were fire­works on Sat­ur­day night. I have no expe­ri­ence in shoot­ing fire­works before this. So I ended up with only two accept­able pictures.

P/S: More pic­tures on my Face­book album.
