Rocky Mountain Balloon Festival Photos

I just posted photos I took at the Rock Mountain Balloon Festival to my photo website. You can check them out at right now. This was the first balloon festival I have attended and it was way cool.

The Saturday night "Lite Up the Nite" session had 40 or so hot air balloons all inflated. Some were giving short rides to kids. After sunset there were a couple of countdowns, at the end of which all the ballooners fired their burners. All the balloons got this glow from inside that looked so cool.

Sunday morning was a sunrise launch of more than 60 balloons. They filled the sky with beautiful color. The balloons were in various shapes, colors and sizes, along with corporate sponsors like Target, ReMax and others. I can't wait until next year's event!
