Wow. That's almost all I have to say when I first think about this piece and the experience to capture it. It was my first ever time actually IN a hot air balloon. I had woken up at 4:00 in the morning in the pitch black to await my transport to the balloon launch site. I was so incredibly excited I could hardly contain myself, even despite the wee-hour of the morning. With all the curiosity in the world I watched as the crew inflated these massive balloons lying on their sides, and ultimately pulled them upright. About 15 of us (yes, that's right, I was surprised too!) hopped into the basket and within minutes, we started to float up from off the ground!! That was it, we were now rising as high as the mountain-tops. In a basket. And I was thrilled. The mountain range and canyon opened up below us and the most gorgeous views ensued. The second balloon would come into view every so often, and I was so lucky to be able to capture the pure whimsy that was what it felt like to be floating peacefully along in the wind in a hot air balloon.
