Balloon Chasing

How do most people spend their Sunday mornings? Hmm, let me see, sleeping in, having breakfast, reading the Sunday newspaper and maybe going to church. Me on the other hand, no, that is not for me. Most Sunday's I'll get up and play golf, which is always fun. This past Sunday though was a little bit different. I was up after 3 hours of sleep at 4am. Picked up my friend and we headed to Wine Country in Temecula. Our mission, to photograph the hot air balloons taking off bright and early at 6am. So there we were at just after 6 watching the balloons slowly inflate and stand proud. Then they took off, closely followed by us and their chase vehicles. We chased these balloons all over Temecula countryside and got some pretty good photographs. It was a fun way to spend a few hours and I look forward to doing it again, but next time I want a ride in one of those balloons and you can be sure I'll photograph a whole lot along the way.

The photograph above was taken shortly after this balloon touched down in one of the vineyards.
