Unplanned

This was one of those moments when I stopped in my tracks, ripped the point and shoot camera out of my handbag and hoped for the best. It’s not the best exposure, but you get the picture.

I love all the spring blossom photos on the blogs...makes my heart glad. This one is special, Sharon. It is picture perfect. What a view the person(s) in the balloon must have had of the surroundings.

Nice moment. Regarding the comments the other day about the White Tank Mountains, did you notice that they are visible on the horizon on Julie's sunset photo on her site today?

... and the color of the hot air balloon even matches perfectly with the bouganvilla! Hoe'd you do that? What a lucky capture.
