Default Morning Surprise!

​This morning, while soundly sleeping in, My wife and I were awakened to a very LOUD roaring sound. In my fog, I didn't recognize the sound and was tempted to go back to sleep. But, it became louder and LOUDER. Soon there was a mingling of voices. Then, it hit me -- HOT AIR BALLOON! From the sound, I knew it was coming down close and figured it was landing in the field adjacent to our yard. My wife said, "PHOTO OP!", I grabbed the HS50 and ran out and around to the back. The balloon was not landing near our back yard... the balloon was landing IN our backyard!!

You can see the entire episode from touchdown to pack-up here. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to reverse the sort order on them, so their are in reverse sequence. https://www.flickr.com/photos/gjtoth...7644277884836/
