ELEMENTS - AIR

This is a hard one - Shari has set us a difficult task for day 3 of the Elements photo challenge AIR. I have struggled to think what to put and I am sure that there will be more creative takes on air, but here goes:

HOT AIR - hot air balloons floating majestically over Stockholm on a hot summer night



CONDENSED AIR - clouds forming from air particles full of water



MOVING AIR - the sound of the wind rustling through a corn field



EN PLEIN AIR - a summer picnic

Beautiful pictures (all of the posts) but I especially like the moving stalks...

Looks to be a nice summer picnic ;-)

Yes, I found it hard to photograph air, too! I think it was tricky because it's more what air does, than how it looks. As you so wonderfully show, it lifts balloons, it supports the clouds, it surrounds a happy picnic. I have to say I thought of hot air balloons and clouds as you did. With your seed stalks bending in the breeze I can actually feel the wind.

Ah, now for fire...!
