Balloons Over Wairarapa: Trust House Night Glow: Tethered hot air balloons light up the Masterton night sky in an amazing display of how to synchronise light from the flames of their burners with stirring music (Light Cavalry Overture, by Franz von Suppe). Filmed on Saturday 19 March 2011 at Masterton, New Zealand.


This image was captured hand-held using the full frame 24.6 megapixel Sony A900 digital camera, with the Carl Zeiss 24mm-70mm lens, at 1/80 second, F/2.8, ISO 4000, and a focal length of 24mm.
