Up, up and away!
In August the little village of Metamora hosts a hot air balloon launch, and if the weather cooperates it is a marvelous sight.
This year the conditions were perfect and we watched 15 colorful balloons lift off and sail slowly away into a perfectly clear, blue sky. Last year I left my camera home, vowing to simply sit back and enjoy the spectacle, but this year I just couldn’t resist getting some shots for the blog.
53 shots later, I am thanking heaven for digital cameras, and resisting the temptation to include all of them in the slide show! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
