Swedens Independence Day - June 6th
Here in Sweden we celebrate our independence day June 6th, in memory of June 6th 1523, when Gustaf Wasa was apointed King. For some reason we celebrate this with 25000 ballons, colored as the Swedish flag. I used a Sigma 10-20 for all images in this post.

We were 16 photographers that that met up to shoot some ballons =) , and I took some portraits of them, strobist style, with Sigma 500 Super and a shoot thru umbrella.
