Thank you mole. I'm fairly happy with the shots I got considering the circumstances. Plus the viewing area in front of the balloons was facing directly into the sun as it was setting for the day so I had to try and stand in the shadow of one of the balloons while shooting these. Thankfully they are large balloons so finding something to block the sunlight was easy. From what I understand, my daughter had a good first day of school, I work nights so I don't get to see her when she comes home from school at the end of the day.

Since it's an annual event I will have to try and get back again next year, hopefully with better luck on the weather front.
