That's a very large hot air balloon compared to the ordinary run-off-the -maill garden variety hot air balloon. I guess that's why it can carry so many people.

This does look very fun to do - don't know if I'd classify it as a "simple pleasure" though. To me, simple pleasures are those available to everyone at very little or no cost. It must be pretty expensive to go on a ballon ride like this.

whose pleasure are you talking about? theirs? yours, when you look how they enjoy flying? this photo is not telling.

I like the sunset on baloon...lovely colors. I think I would chose bit different cropping or composition. Might crop off the trees at bottom.

this is not a simple pleasure, but it is pleasant.

Great Image. The contrast between the soft colors of the balloon and the background is what sets this off for me. Very nice job.
