Balloon Festival 2010 photos

balloon fest 2010

Up, up, up

Grounded by wind the first two day, the balloons finally took flight at the Adirondack Ballon Festival on Sunday in Queensbury. Paul passed along this set of nice photos from the day.

He always seems to come away from the balloon fest with a good panorama or two, and this year is no exception. We still remember the great one he took back in 2008.

A few other balloon fest photosets, from Flickr users kanniduba and Dennis Pause.

I crew for a friend's balloon every year at that festival. It's by far the favorite of the crew & the pilots. Glad we at least got a few flights in! Unfortunate that people got turned away Saturday when they cancelled flights though. There's still activities on the grounds even if there's not flights.

The link for Paul's photos doesn't work.
However, the one from 2008 looks fantastic. Almost like CGI.

Editors: Fixed. Thanks
