Inside "Freedom"

5th place
The interior of the hot air balloon "Freedom" in Cody, WY, USA. At dawn on 9/11/11, the pilot & crew set up the balloon & began the "cold inflate," using a gas-powered fan to blow air into the envelope. I took 13 vertical frames and stitched them into one large view of the inside of the balloon. The golden light of the rising sun illuminated the top of the envelope as it rested on the ground prior to being filled with hot air from the propane burners.
