Up, up and away

Last Thursday night I took a drive to Philipsburg, NJ to attend the Warren County Fair. Not that I needed to attend another fair, but this one had nightly hot air balloon launches, weather permitting. I've always wanted to attend a hot air balloon festival, but somehow my schedule never coordinated with the festivals in the area.

There were about 35 brightly colored balloons. It was well worth the long drive to photograph this, but I must make a note to myself to remember to attend a festival in PA instead. In NJ it is against the law for spectators to wander the fields where balloons are being launched.


  1. These are so fun to attend, the colors and subjects.. Nice way to fill the frame!

  2. Fantastic colors & subject! It must have been very exciting capturing these huge balloons.
