How to Spend a Sunday Morning

Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, CA

We watched these balloonists lay out and fill their ballons, and then take off. It was a wonderful sight to see and be
able to shoot a few pics, before they sailed south with the prevailing winds. Seems like a great way to spend a Sunday.

Great shot, Sandi! I give those guys credit. Such a sharp contrast of the balloon over the sharp rocks. Nice capture.

Fantastic, there is an unreal feeling in this ballon appearing over the rocks, besides that the photo is taken in your usual so accurate way, which I deeply appreciate.
