Hot air baloons…3rd time’s the charm right?

I get up at 3am to go to another Hot Air Balloon Festival today. Everything is running late. (So much for sunrise take off photos) This is the smaller festival with only 7 balloons, but there is no wind so I’m hoping to capture the balloons in the air rather than just crashing into each other on the ground this time.

I made the best of the early morning despite the balloons not being up and walked around the ranch taking photos in the sunrise lighting until the first balloon was up. Once it was up I went to the far corner to get photos with less people in them. All together only 4 balloons took off.

It was not a total waste. I met two other photographers in the far corner. One told me that the Reno Hot Air Balloon Festival has about 50 balloons take off in the valley and you can see them easily from the top of a nearby hill away from the crowds of the festival… hmmm I may have a road trip in my future…
