At first, I wasn't really thinking to go since nobody were going that morning. So, I went cycling to uni and made some shooting, especially around Bledisloe Park.

On the way to Islamic Centre, I got a text from Bidi that they want to pick me up to Levin. I replied that I'm in Massey so instead of that they come and pick me and Lutfi up at the campus.
Upon the arrival, we saw no balloons on air. I thought that it's already finished. But actually not yet. The finale will be starting around 6pm they said. Plus, some of the balloons were actually located across the field, waiting to take off to the main venue.
Just above my head..
Preparing for landing. Maneuvering a balloon is not that easy as with plane.
If you see those pictures, it was cloudy all the time. But there was a moment where suddenly sun coming out from the clouds, showing itself. It was the beautiful moment that day where everybody, hundreds of people suddenly became quiet and watch over the sunset at the horizon. I was grateful to see this moment and captured it with my camera.

It's beginning to dark. But the event is still running high like a funfair where there are games and foods stalls everywhere, plus a small concert. Many peoples are coming from all the places nearby such as Wellington and Palmerston North. The finale of the event was the music performance by all of the balloons, where they synchronising the music with the lights coming from the balloons (in fact, gas being burned).
The event ended around 7pm. We headed back to Palmy then. Thanks to Hafezz, Bidi, and others for inviting me to go with you guys.
