Our NEPE group meet last Friday night in Vermont, to shoot glow pictures of the balloons after they took off at 6 PM. John one of the organizers, decided to take a flight, returning with an experience of his life. The cost for the flight was $222. The balloons for the glow show remained on the ground, they are not allow to fly at night, showcasing their firing up, displaying an awesome glow show to music.
The next morning we were up at 4:30, meeting at the field at 6 AM to view another flight. The wind current was not as strong as the night before, the balloons remained very close to the field, allowing us to photograph.
I cannot think of better time, great shooting with our newly found friends, enjoy one of my most remembered events.
