Howdy Neighbor.

As many of you have seen, the Alabama Jubilee Balloon Festival was this weekend in Decatur, Alabama. I tried to get in the park, but the traffic was so bad that I just turned around. This was at 6:00 in the morning, btw.


I decided to try some alternative locations, but they didn't work out well. I ultimately got this shot by pulling over on Interstate 65 between Priceville and the Tennessee River. Most of the balloons floated right overhead.


In this shot, I added the sky. The one in the original shot was completely blown out.
