    Hot Air Balloons

    Adults are really just big kids at heart. We all love balloons.



    Yea. The bottoms is cropped short, but that's just to get rid of the crowd.

    I really like this... Ilike the composition alot and the colors...

    I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting to enjoy a shot of baloons as much as I did...

    Nice photo.

    Great shot. The cut off balloons at the bottom don't bother me so much.

    They're doing The Great Forest Park Balloon Race in St. Louis this weekend. I'm hoping to get to attend the balloon glow this Friday. I don't think I'll make it to the actual race on Saturday, though.

    I'm really exited about the glow. They do it at night so all of the balloons are just beautiful.

    Don't forget to bring a tripod. It's very beautiful and very difficult to take good shots of them in the dark. They light up very spontaneously, and the longer shutter speeds required make it just a little bit more difficult.
