Sky Watch Friday this is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link a 2:30 PM EDT. SWF is run by Klaus, Louise, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.
Timing can be everything in getting a special capture. I was in the back yard trying to get a Chipmunk that crawled to the top of a garden post to get a better view of the area. I heard the whoosh of gas going into a hot air balloon. The balloon was fairly close and I had taken my better camera out because the Chipmunk is so small. The results are a colorful balloon in a sullen sky. These were taken from my front yard.
It is shown here over the trees from the back yard. It was fairly close and I got some neat shots.
