Life Through the Lens// Hot Air Balloon Adventure

Sometimes the stars align, and it feels like...magic. This year we thought it would be fun to go see the annual hot air balloon launch in downtown Provo. When we arrived at the launch site, most of the balloons were already mid-air, swiftly drifting westward. So, instead of getting out with the crowd and watching the balloons fade in the distance, we decided to follow them. Of course, I was anxious to get a great photo of the hot air balloons in the morning light, and we were suddenly part of an exciting adventure.

I immediately fell in love with the pretty striped one, and we began following it. As it headed further and further west we realized it was serendipitously going to land down on Danny's family farm. Danny quickly became essential in assisting the balloon's landing and take down, and I could photograph the magical scene to my heart's content. It was a perfect morning.
