Every August the neighboring village of Metamora holds a Hot Air Balloon Launch as part of their Country Days Celebration.
It is such a wonderful photo-op and we try never to miss it. This year was extra special because our daughter and granddaughters were visiting and were able to accompany us. The balloons can only launch if the weather cooperates and this year it did, and we watched in awe as crews worked to inflate and launch about 15 balloons into a clear blue sky.
Our Granddog, Willow enjoys her visits here, as she can be off leash much more than she can at her home in the city. It’s quite challenging to photograph her in full flight, and I need a little more practice. Maybe I can get some better shots on her next visit.
