Balloon Below

Shortly after lift-off, I took this shot of a balloon rising closer to the balloon I’d just risen in. Did I look as awed, as focused, as nervous as they do? All the while, I’m thinking, the pilots are trying to avoid electrical wires and other balloons. What a wonderful way to travel--so quiet, so gentle, so amazing.
