Here's part two of the show. I actually took a break during the day and slipped off to shoot a waterfall. (that's a whole different story though). So on we go.

Thanks Chris

#2 is a great shot, and I like those 'glow' ones too, wish I had been able to get back and join you guys...

The glow was an experience and a half to photograph. Especially since I was right in the middle of the field. (Should have gone off to the side). Trying to swing around, focus and shoot in the 2 seconds the balloons were lit, was challenging to say the least.

I really liked #2 as well. That's probably my fav.

Kriss, you've got some gorgeous shots! I love going to balloon festivals. So colorful...

#2 is absolutely perfect!


Um...is that a shark in #3? :wink: (you thought I forgot, didn't you?!?!)

Great shots! Balloons are very fun to photograph. I saw the basket rig (if you can call it a basket) in #1 for sale at Albuquerque last fall. Basically a chair with 9 gallons of propane strapped to it. I believe it can be flown with a much smaller balloon. #3 was at Albuquerque last fall, its a pretty balloon. Oh, almost forgot, nice long exposure on the last one, I like how the balloon to the right appears to be 'growing'.
