Skywatch Friday

All week I have been posting photos taken at the Coshocton Balloon Festival, the most colorful event I have been to lately. I hope everyone is not tired of seeing them!  I love this first one....watching them blow up that huge balloon.....the last shot is this balloon in the air.

Great, colorful picture!

Stunning color against the blue sky, beautiful.

When we lived outside of Cleveland we used to go to the Ravenna (near Kent/Streetsboro) "Balloon-Afair" held in the fall. Have you been?

I would be the happiest person in the world if I could go up in a hot air balloon. It is something I have wanted to do ever since I saw a show here in town.
Your photos are fabulous, Carol.

They are so colourful and such fun to watch as well. Lovely against the sky. Did you go up?

Rambling Round said...

Oh, how colorful! I've only been to one balloon event a long time ago. Perfect for Skywatch.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Beautiful skywatch shots. Love all the colors in the balloons.

Denise said...

I would love to go to a balloon festival. That would be very exciting. Great photos, so colorful!

Frank said...

Wow. And all I could find were stormy, threatening clouds over Tampa. There are some balloon enthusiasts east of the Tampa Bay area, in more open areas near Lakeland where they hold the annual Sun-n-Fun Fly In, but your shots are simply gorgeous. Beautiful colors and designs. (Sure beats by a mile the Goodyear blimp overhead for Super Bowl.)

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

It would be almost impossible to get tired of these vibrant colored ballons against a beautiful blue sky backdrop! Thanks for sharing them.

Small City Scenes said...

Super excellent!!! wow so many colors. It is breathtaking. We have a balloon festival here in June or July at Kla-ha-ya Days in the little town of Snohomish. Not as many as you have shown though. MB

Great shots. I will look at your other stuff too later today - work and life have been crazy and my blogging is suffering as a result...
