Behind The Lens

Location
Every year Wellsville, NY has a lovely balloon rally. It is held at the local "Island Park" and some of the balloonist find it a challenge to touch down and take off again. Most years none of them manage it as the wind has to be just right and there is a narrow window of opportunity...
Time
Normally the balloons take off early in the morning but this year the wind was marginal so they delayed till almost noon.
Lighting
Not really.
Equipment
Shot this with the Canon 80D and my 24-70...
Inspiration
Every year I attend and try to make it a point to capture at least one epic image. I love the balloons and the people who own them are always great!
Editing
Just some light processing to make the colors pop.
In my camera bag
A Canon 5D Mark IV and a half dozen Sigma Art and Tamron G2 lenses dominate my kit.
Feedback
Just be ready. At these events so much is going on it can be a challenge to be in the right place at the right time. But technically it was pretty simple.
