SKYWARD BOUND

BetterPhoto.com Editor's PickBetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day   ~*~SKYWARD BOUND~*~   ACBP - Storytelling
~*~SKYWARD BOUND~*~ ACBP - Storytelling
One of four story-telling images of what one would see and experience at a Balloon Festival. To me, one of the best perspectives of these magnificent balloons is taken from the ground pointing straight up into the deep blue sky! This shot was taken shortly after lift-off and shows how close together these balloons can get to each other.
Set-up: hand-held with a wide open aperture of f/5.6, an ISO of 100 and a shutter speed of 1/160 second.

I am SOOOOO excited.....this is my very first POTD! I just got home from exercising and was sitting down to check and see if I got any mail. What a TOTAL surprise.!!! A big huge thanks to all of you for stopping by to congratulate me. Many of you remember me from two years ago when I was so unsure of all my work and wondered when I would ever be a good enough photographer to get my first EP. I'm as exhilarated now as I was then and there have been SO MANY of you BP friends and instructors who, with their comments and helpful critiques who have nurtured me along this incredible photographic journey. What a ride! ( I can hardly wait for this summer's balloon festival which is right in town. I'm so lucky to be able to photograph these amazing balloons practically in my own backyard...) Again, thank you for your support.

Johnnie Ann and Kathryn - It is so nice to hear from "new-to-me" BP members! Thank you so much for stopping by with your congratulations. EP's are great, but I've always wanted a POTD so I am very grateful, indeed, for this honor!
