Look Up: First of the season

Just as we sat down to dinner last night, the first hot air balloon of the season came floating by.  Naturally I had to jump up, grab my camera, and go out to snap a few shots.  I didn’t notice until I looked at the photos on the computer that I had also captured a sun dog.

So I decided to make this a SkyWatch Friday post, too.  Click on the link to enjoy more beautiful skies from around the world.  Or post and submit your own SkyWatch Friday post.  You know you want to.  😀

And, as always, click on the photo to see the larger version.  These are not particularly good balloon shots (you can’t see the colors well because of the sunlight) but I do like the way the light is hitting the left side of the balloon in the first shot and the seredipitous sun dog in the second.
