Tranquility over Lake Skinner

Newer Older

It was a gorgeous day at the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival Saturday morning, it was a beautiful peaceful, morning over the lake.

It was a bit too tranquil as a matter of fact. There was not enough wind and a number of balloons drifted to the far side of the lake where it is a nature preserve and they are not welcome. I guess the Park Rangers scolded them and eventually they got rescued.

I suggest viewing in 'slide show' mode to get the full size views in all their detailed glory.

    There is only one thing worse than no wind.. winds that are too fast. But usually this festival is limited by fog in events past , nice to see they we able to launch from the lake/festival area this year.

    Floating balloons in main image look like a idylic scene out a fantasy movie. So colorful and amazing! Great event to have so many balloons lifting up simultaneously!

    Sooooo peaceful, you are right! I absolutely love the "tongues" of green trees and bushes crossing the lake. I am so drawn to it!
