Sheri, Janessa and Joy,
Thanks for your nice comments. This was taken in Tigard, Oregon during the annual balloon festival (Tigard is near Portland). All of the hot air balloons were still on the ground being back-lit by a bright morning sun. I was in the right place at the right time as they didnít stay in this position for long. #680877
