Finally got to Anderson, SC for their Hot Air Balloon Festival last evening (Sat, 5/28th). The D2X really shines in this type of shooting. I rotated through the 12-24, 28-70, 80-200, & 300 at various times. There were two waves of Hounds to chase the Hare. Not all of the Hounds in the second wave got up when the red flag was raised (wind speed exceeds limit). For me it was like being in a candy store (or that little house in Texas).

Larry,

I guess that was like a candy store. I love ballons. Took a ride once.. What a wonderful feeling that is.

Great colors. Great shots.

Gale- Now, about that bunny....lolol Did it fly. Toooo cute.

The bunny does fly but it is one that got caught in the second wave grounding.

Gaye- How do you ever pick a favorite picture out of that great bunch?

I saw that problem immediately coupled with the fact that these are uncropped (cropping increases number of favorites). If the art gallery plans on selling, they'll make the pick. I do see a few that would look good on large canvas.

Thats cool Larry, Ididnt know SC had one , you always hear about New Mexicos. Ive always wanted to shoot one of those.
I didn't know it either until looking at the on-line SC events. Picked up on the balloons a month ago since that was something I wanted to do too.
