Serendipity at Kemland

Serendipity at Kemland Farm
Surprises wait just over the horizon.   I was waiting for the Combine to make another pass at Kemland Farm in Volant, PA this past Sunday so I could get a picture of the sun setting over the back of the machine and floating into view comes this ballon.  At first I felt a stab of jealousy, for what a wonderful evening to be floating in the clouds.  Then I was thankful as they came lower and closer to be given the opportunity to take this shot.  Serendipity is a photographers best friend.

Indeed it is, Tami! Very cool! I love the lifting up of dust and the balloon afloat as well. And what a moment for you to catch. :)

Awesome photo opportunity. I got to go up in a hot air balloon a couple of years back and it was an amazing experience, even for me with my fear of hights.

Thanks all! This was a good moment. When you are shooting landscapes, as most of you know, a lot of standing around and waiting goes on. The right moment etc. This was so fun to see. Took my imagination right to a new place.

Carrie!!! I really can't take credit for this one. Wish I could find the ballon operator and send him a copy. He floated down at just the right time.
