SkyWatch Friday

I caught some interesting sky photos during the Balloon Festival last weekend. This first one was during the "fire show" the hot air balloon pilots put on since it was too windy to inflate for the night glow.



This was taken early Sunday morning when the wind wasn't good for launching the balloons, but the pilots still inflated the balloons for us!

The fire show looks cool. Hope the wind settled down for some ballooning.

Those clouds were putting on a pretty good show behind the fire!

It seems you are having a great time with all the festivals taking place there! All your shots are great and I especially like some with the balloons.

Awesome! It's not something we see around here. I have yet to see the big hot air balloons since moving to the area 3 years ago...
