Looking Up!
Here’s a different kind of sunrise image. We were in Albuquerque, NM at dawn to capture the hot air ballon rally 3 years ago. One of my favorite shots is taking through the base of the massive balloon as they begin to fill it with heated air while helpers’ shadows can be seen on through the colorful translucent fabric. 
This visual metaphor is my way of thanking all of you for your prayers and well wishes sent out for my father-in-law. While things are looking up and he is moving out of the ICU, there’s still a long recovery ahead before he takes off. —-
