Balloon Races

Except for the fact that we had to wake up before 4 am, it was a beautiful event - our second trip to Balloon Races in Reno, Nevada, where we watched the mass ascension of colorful balloons. We were taking pictures in two teams:
1: me, from a safe distance and right next to a picnic basket full of goodies, although I forgot that the exposure meter of my camera was set to "Spot" and I was happily and unknowingly wasting time on badly exposed pictures!
2: my husband trying his new Sony Nex5, the first compact camera with APS-C sensor, and equipped with some extra lenses, he was bravely taking close-up shots and deserves all the credit. Well, the most of it. :)
