Hot Air Balloons

July 4th, 2008

Energizer Bunny

Photos from the 5:30 am hot air balloon launch this morning have been posted at Flickr.

I’m so happy I managed to drag my butt out of bed at 4 am for this because it was so worth it. We got a great spot and saw almost all of the balloons that launched with the exception of a penguin design. The weather was a bit nippy at that hour but the sky was clear and our photos came out great. I was rather worried while I was taking them because it’s hard to tell on the LCD what the photo is really going to look like. I’m happy to report that the photo almost always looks better on the computer than it appears on the camera.

After the balloons had left us, we took off and had breakfast, then killed a little time shopping before scoping out a place to sit for the parade Joe’s son was in. Those photos are to follow later this weekend.
