I was headed home from work this morning and noticed this balloon through the trees, so I took some side roads and found it fairly quickly. Kind of harsh lighting.

Just beautiful. The lighting was perfect, and well framed too.

Beautiful picture. Would that happen to be in the Ga. 400 highway area?

Thanks! Luckily, the wind was almost still so the balloon wasn't moving very fast.

Thank you! Not very far from 400- maybe 10-12 miles west near Free Home.

Thanks! It was a very nice morning, ahead of the Big Cold Front.

Thanks! I've found that the PLM lens seems to produce Limited-like colors.

Thanks! I was getting only glimpses of the balloon through the trees, while keeping an eye on my nav map for roads going the right way, and I lucked out finding this farm at the right time
