“Peach Hot Air Balloon Night Glow” is a color photograph wall art print of a hot air balloon glowing in the night. (Click on the picture for a larger image)
The event is the annual Hot Air Balloon Festival in Avondale, Arizona (Phoenix metropolitan area). The balloon envelopes are inflated in the early morning hours for flights and races. After that series of events, the balloons are deflated until the evening hours when the envelopes are again inflated, but this time they stay on the ground. As evening turns into night with the darkening sky, the balloon operators shoot large flames up into the envelope of the balloon illuminating the brightly colored balloons. At this event the operators were synchronized to music, making the series of balloons rotate the glow to the beat of the tunes. This nighttime spectacular is referred to as The Desert Glow. It is a stunning scene to behold with the contrast of light and dark and the bright vivid colors of the balloon envelopes.
The usage of color photography as a wall art print lends itself to many different types of interior design, from contemporary to traditional. I think what dictates the look is the subject matter of the photograph and the manner in which it is framed and matted. The end result of either creates a look that lends itself to one type of decor or the other. For example, a simple picture with a simple matting and frame lend themselves more to a modern or contemporary look, where as the opposite would typically lend itself to a more traditional interior design.
