When you are looking out over the valley from the mountainside, you can clearly see the balloons in the air. However, your eye is the equivalent of a wide angle 50 mm lens. To capture part of what you see with a camera, you need a wide-angle lens such as this photo taken with a 24 mm lens setting (it is a zoom lens). You can click on the photo and see it enlarged, but it is not the same as you would see with your own eyes. The balloons appear much larger and more prominent when you see the view for yourself.
