Click to preview LIGHT MY FIRE Photography by Dennis Griffin photo book

Here are my impressions of the dawn balloon rise at the 2012 Citrus Hot Air Balloon Festival in Santa Paula, California. The images from that Saturday in July are my attempt to share some of what I experienced photographing the early morning balloon ascent. Was it inspirational, did it light my fire? Absolutely! I like the images in this book for their patterns of color and light, both geometric and random. Some are presented alone, others are mixed and matched in various juxtapositions to create new and unique compositions.
