Hot Air Balloons

For one reason or another (weather, travel, work, etc.), I haven't been able to attend one of the local hot air balloon festivals (Ravenna Balloon A-Fair) until this year. This year I made it. I went with low expectations since I had never been on site before and had no idea how the balloon launch was organized. But I arrived early and quickly scoped out a good location from which to shoot. And for the first time, I was shooting with two cameras at once so as to eliminate the need to switch lenses. Here is some of what I got. (Still struggling with how to get my images to post as sharply as they appear on my editing screen — if anyone has some tips on this I would appreciate hearing them.)
