Sky Watch - Hot air balloon

Monday Marianne spotted a hot air balloon heading toward our house, so I went outside with my camera. The balloon seemed stationary (there was no wind) and was dropping lower. After a few minutes I saw the flame as he added more lift. The balloon began to rise and drift towards me, eventually passing directly overhead.

What a terrific, colorful balloon, Lew, and such superb captures!! One of my fondest memories is of a wonderful balloon ride over the wine country in California with my youngest daughter! Such fun to look the eagle in the eye!! Have a great weekend!

What a colorful balloon. Not sure if I would want to go for a ride in one, but it's fun to watch.
