Hot air balloon lifting off from Taylor Lake
It was just after 6 a.m. on a bright June morning.  Both of my near-sighted buddies, Hamlet and Macbeth, were making the low toned growling sound they use when upset.  Then I heard what was disturbing them, the sound of the fire breathing balloon monster.  It was close, so I grabbed my camera and ran down to the lake.  The balloon had just touched down or was low enough to drag a rope in the water.  As it lifted off, the passengers in the balloon saw me taking pictures and waved.
