Balloon Time

2014.09.22
pixel
The G-Daddy was the balloon that was used to launch the parachute man to the ground. He landed right on target. This pattern is one of my favorites. Lots of color.
pixel
Small part of the launch field and some of the vendors in the background. I loved the clouds in the background.
pixel
These were the first two balloons to inflate for the glow coming later on. Both had great patterns for shooting after dark. The only problem was I couldn't catch them both lit at the same time.
pixel
Sliced mushroom, or that's what it looked like. It was inflated about half way several times but they never got it up off the ground. Maybe a nice garnish for a salad?
pixel
Both the earlier balloons hovering off the ground.
pixel
De Flame, Boss, De Flame. Well I thought it was a good take off from Fantasy Island. Lots of heat waves off the flame itself.
pixel
Looks like these three were waiting on the Wind Rose to get inflated. That's the nearest balloon to us.
pixel
A closer shot with a little fire.
pixel
Who you looking at Buddy. This balloon looks like it's ready for a head butt.
pixel
Amazing what a little fire does to the color and intensity of the balloons.
pixel
Just feel the burn. I'll bet that the group under this one was feeling a little heat from that flame.
pixel
Number one lit!
pixel
Number two lit.
pixel
Wind Rose up close and in the air so to speak. Still tethered but ready to go.
pixel
Keep trying. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
pixel
Just a little bit of light makes the balloon show up just a little.
pixel
A little more flame....a little more light and this would be a better shot. Or would it?
pixel
Tres! These three look like they are sneaking out into the dark in single file.
This was my favorite shot of the night.
pixel
Time again for the Plano Balloon Fest. Instead of getting up at 4 in the morning, driving an hour, and finding a good place to shoot from in the dark, I decided to go to the Friday glow. I like the night work much better than the day so it worked out perfectly. Took Janie with me and we had a ball. Hope you like the shots.
