Hot Air Balloons

Went to the mass ascension of hot air balloons on Saturday, part of the Balloon Classic in Indianola IA. There were 100 or more balloons all going up into hot (100 degree), hazy skies in the space of 20 minutes or so. I was shooting a 100mm lens, but it looked like the pros were using the Canon 70-200 f2.8L lens. Always keeping an eye on the equipment, but there’s no way that I’ll be able to afford one of those anytime soon.

I wasn’t too happy wiht the colors, I was hoping that the sky would be more consistently blue, but it was hazy, hot, humid, and later, dusty from chasing the pack on gravel roads.

The mist here is all dust, not fog.
