Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic 2007

My daughter Casey and I stayed the night before in my parents motorhome at Keiser Park in Windsor. We woke up at 4:30 am to see the hot air balloons!

It was not the best day as far as weather, we had a 100 foot ceiling of visability, (translates to: the balloons can't lift off)

I went outside anyway to get some shots of the morning.

Check out the flame in the morning, I was fooling around with settings on the camera to get different shots.

I have always liked photos taken of the inside of balloons, I especially like this bright colored balloon.

Here is a pretty good shot of the "Dawn Patrol". It was lighter outside than previous years, but that was due to weather conditions.

Check out this vantage point. The motor home was parked 20 feet from the field, only a small road was in front of us. So from the warmth of the motor home we could watch the balloons.

These photos are taken from within the basket of the balloon on Casey and I's teathered flight!

Check out my car! This is my parents motor home we stayed in!
