G1X Mark II vs The Hot Air Balloons
2 months ago

I got myself up out of bed this morning at 4:45am (!!!), to drive to Turf Valley, a golf resort just west of Baltimore, MD.  Why?  To shoot hot air balloons that were scheduled to lift off between 6am and 6:30am.  I took two cameras with me - my D800e SLR, and my little G1X Mark II.  There was a nice selection of hot air balloons, which was great.  However, I was disappointed to learn that the balloons would not be taking off because of the weather (too much wind up at the level where the balloons would travel).  I was hoping to take a shot of a sky filled with hot air balloons slowly floating towards the horizon.

Despite the disappointment of not getting the shot I really wanted to take, there were still some balloons to shoot.  And the weather was great - cool, crisp air, and clear skies with a couple of clouds.  Here are a few that I took this morning with the G1X Mark II:
