Colorado Springs Balloon Classic. These photos are from the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic held in September.
Some mornings if I am lucky, I awake to the swishing sound of fire bringing a hot air balloon right over our house. This photo was taken on a very lucky day. I was ignored when I yelled, "come and get me."
While I was taking a balloon ride, these two balloons were side by side. Their reflections appeared in the water as they gently floated above the Rio Grande River in New Mexico.
A calm spring evening will often bring the balloons to our neighborhood. It doesn't get any better than this.
This beautiful balloon caught my eye as it drifted by the coloring so matched the clouds, and sky. The sunrays shinning down through the clouds in front of the Sandia Mountains just made the whole picture come together
