There were quite a few speciality balloons at the Great Reno Balloon Race.. held in Reno, Nevada the weekend of Sept. 7, 2013.. the two fishies are male and female with a husband and wife team at the controls..and that big friendly insightful bear needs no introduction..The low hanging brownish color is from ground hugging smoke from the RIM fire in Yosemite which has plagued the area for a few weeks + .. that fire is 80% contained now and has burned 400 square miles.. good thing this day the smoke wasn’t too bad in the morning hours which made for some wonderful views of the balloons… appreciate your views and comments..Canon T4i w/ Canon 70-300 ..UV/CP filters…ISO 320,lens 110mm, f/5.0, shutter priority, exp 1/1000sec….cheers y’all…
