Fall Colors in Colorado #2: Reflections

Reflection of turning Aspens in a beaver pond along the Twin 
Cone Trail, near Kenosha Pass Colorado. Made this shot yesterday, 
the trees were already well past peak color. This is my second 
attempt at this shot. I was not satisfied with last year's attempt.

X-wing fighers

A friend invited me to watch him play a Star Wars themed 
miniatures game. Took the opportunity to try shooting the miniatures. 
Had difficulty with the really narrow depth of field on the closeups.

Aborted Balloon Launch

Early Sunday morning at the Colorado Balloon Festival. We got there at sunrise to watch the launch, but the winds came up shortly after they started to inflate the balloons, so they never launched.

Balloon lighting without balloons

Traditionally every night of the festival they conduct a balloon lighting, where they inflate the balloons and light them up with their burners. This year the winds were too strong to put out the balloons, but the operators decided to provide a light show anyway.

Colorado Balloon Festival

This is the last of the annual Colorado Balloon Festivals. Every Labor day the Balloon Festival was held at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs. Due to persistent high winds this year's festival was pretty much a bust. But I was still able to get some interesting photos. More to come through the week.
