Thank you. They were a lot closer before I took this shot. I was waiting for a balloon behind them to have a clear separation.
And they are photogs, too!
Yes, it was a bit too close. If I was in the Sonoma Star, I would have been screaming at the pilot of the rising balloon. Too close.
I am still “up in the air” whether or not I will ever go up in a hot air balloon but you have certainly captured a beautiful shot.
I’m not too anxious to go up but it is enjoyable to be right in the midst of the launchings. Thanks as always for your comments and support.
Victor, thank you.
Another great capture!!!
Thank you. I’ve got one more from this series that I’ll publish tomorrow.
Stacy, thank you
Great shot but WOW! That is close!!!!
Thank you and yes too close for what would be defined as safe.
No kidding! I’ve gone up in a balloon before and they definitely stretched out the launches.
They were launching balloons very close together but staging them off in timed intervals.
Natasha, thank you. Fortunately, I caught the shadow and had time to wait for the balloon in the distance to move away.
great picture. lovely colours
Thank you. This image was a patience photo. I had to wait until other balloons cleared to get the two to cleanly interact.
This image has won a local competition with the photo society I’m member and then went to N4CA and got an award.
