Hot Air Balloons
I found something other than water to create a palette of colors into an abstract image - hot air balloons.
A few years ago I went to a hot air balloon festival near where I live. I started taking images of the hot air balloons and while waiting for the ascent to start I tried taking motion blur photos of balloons spread out on the ground and those that were inflated. The blend of colors was amazing and I continued the shoot. This became the focus of the images I shot the rest of the day.
