Photo taken with Olympus E-500, no flash, ISO500, 1/640exposure about 115mm zoom. This was cropped to get rid of some of the hazy sky in the background..



Picture was taken at a ballonfest here in New Jersey.Somewhere around 80+ ballons were launched.. Next year, I will spend the $250 and go on a 3 hour ballon ride to take some different pictures of these neat work of arts.

Saw everything from the standard hot air ballon, to dog ballon, to an eagle ballon, to a van ballon, to soda can ballonand even an american flag ballon.

That bunny is everywhere!

$250 for a ride, hmmmm... But I can't even imagine what the view would be like.

Very nice capture.

Aloha

That is funny! Nice shot.

Years ago, I remember seeing a balloon that looked like a huge high-top sneaker floating over the golf course where I worked. Very surreal at 7:30 AM...

But have you seen the Moving Van or the Alpo dog food can or the Burger King Whopper? Those are some of the unusual balloons I've seen in the Portland area. Yes, the Energizer Bunny has been here, also.

Nice shot.
