2009 Hudson Balloon Festival

Discussion in 'Miscellany' started by Aqualung, Aug 8, 2009.

  1. Went back this year to take some pics @ dawn. Much better weather conditions, in fact, the balloons were airborne before you knew it.

    Jim, sorry I missed you. More pics in my Flickr set.

    The 'crazy' guy who flies on a chair was back...

  2. Those are some NICE photos. #7 is my favorite.
     
  3. Nice shots. Balloon festivals offer such great photo opportunities.

    I was struck by how the photographers outnumber the balloons, in your ground level shots.
     
  4. Number five and seven. Nice series.

    Gorgeous shooting Chris!!
     
  7. thanks! I think I'm gonna blow that one up.

    Thanks Cliff, yeah, a fellow shooter was surprised the photogs/crowd was allowed on the grounds, he has been to a few where they were kept behind a fence. He actually preferred that as the shots were cleaner.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
