Weekly Photos – The Launch

Continuing with more photos from our hot air balloon festival excursion.

On the first day of the festival I hadn’t realized that there was a pond right by the launch site.  (I discovered this by checking Twitter/Instagram for additional photo ideas from the festival)

During the launch on the second day, I started off taking photos that I thought I had missed or could be improved over the first day’s photos.  However once the balloons started launching, I made my way over to the pond so I could get the image below.DSC_4121_2
