Come Saturday Morning

Saturday morning, Motor Man and I met the hot air balloon crew and passengers right around the time of sunrise.

The sun’s reflection on the fog made for an amazing photo op.

Launch sites are chosen depending on the wind direction.  This is at a farm a few miles out of town and is owned by friends of ours. Motor Man had recently received permission from the landowner to use this location as a launch site.

Once again, the weather made for a gorgeous balloon flight for the pilots and passengers.

And some nice photos from the ground.

Although we’ve seen many balloon flights, each one is different: the passengers, the flight ‘path’, the scenery…

And the landing.

I’ve used this quote several times here on the blog, but it always applies:

“Flying is the second greatest thrill known to man:
landing is the first.”
