The Parting Shot for February 13, 2012

This is a photo I took of a hot air balloon flying low overhead.
To best see it, click on the image once to enlarge, then again for full size.
This is one day of my Project 365: A Photo a Day for a Year. So, please check out the new additions.

The Balloonist’s Prayer:
May the winds welcome you with softness.
May the sun bless you with its warm hands.
May you fly so high and so well that God joins you in laughter
And sets you gently back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

  1. Brings back fond memories of my flight back in the ’80s. The balloon was the “Morning Glory.” It was green at the bottom like the sepals of a flower, and the rest was a gorgeous bright blue. The picture I have of it includes an intensely blue sky just like this one.

    • Thank you. They’d been flying around fairly close for several minutes, then I left the house. Stopped at a light, looked up and there they were. Could practically touch them. So grabbed the camera and shot away.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
