I got up at 4:15 yesterday (Saturday) morning to get to the Adirondack Balloon Festival; drove for an hour and twenty minutes to Queensbury where 90 balloons were supposed to go up at 6:30 AM; took another half hour in start and stop traffic to get to get the last mile into Bennett Air Field; and nary a balloon in sight. No launch, and the ballooninsts I spoke to seemed to think there would not be any more this weekend.

So what to do? I had a camera and I came to photograph brightly colored fabric floating across the sky.

After I got a few rainy shots at Bennett Field I decided to head 10 miles further north to Lake George Village.

The first thing I saw there was MORE UMBLELLAS. These people were pilots too, but not balloon pilots. And they were just getting final instructions.

At least you got some color on an otherwise gloomy day.
Nice shots!
