morning flight

The world probably doesn't need more balloon photos, but it's hard to resist their appeal as they drift close by. This one touched down about 25 feet from my car just after I had parked for a walk near the river. The pilot was following another balloon that had made a perfect landing a few minutes earlier, coming down just yards from the chase truck. A fickle breeze pushed the second one a bit too close to a car-filled parking lot, and the pilot shot a jet of flame up into his envelope to lift up again and drift southward over the riverside bosque.
