Closing the Parachute Valve, by Zain Abdullah

One of the crews is closing the parachute valve of a hot air balloon when the hot air balloon is being inflated by the huge fan on the opposite side during the Third Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta held from 17 March 2011 to 21 March 2011 in Putrajaya, Malaysia. I purposely included a human element against a colorful huge hot air balloon at the background to provide a sense of scale just to show how huge the balloon actually is.
