Balloon Fest!!!
Posted By: bigben91682, 09-21-2008, 12:20 PM

Shot yesterday in Upstate NY. About 100 balloons take off at the crack of before dawn....actually it's first thing in the morning, but I had to get up at 4am to get there in time....

Shot on K20D, DA* 16-50mm and DA* 50-135mm

A more comprehensive gallery can be found here.

I noticed some compression artifacts....oh well, the originals are clean....

Thanks, this is my second year and again it blew me away how beautiful the whole thing is. Definitely worth getting up so early.
