- Title: Rainbows & Balloons
- State/Province/Region: Virginia
- Country: United States
- Nearest Area: Long Branch Ranch
- Nearest Town: Winchester
- Best Season: Autumn
- Description: Every fall Long Branch Ranch (off route 50 near Winchester, Va.) holds a balloon festival. The balloons are launched around dawn and again an hour or so before sundown, wind permitting. The balloon in this image is teathered to give ten minute rides up and down in one spot (again weather permitting). While watching the sun rising, I realized that moving to the far side of the lake would result in a rainbow forming in the fountain due to the sun at my back. However, if you try this shot, wear scruffy boots. This side of the lake is mostly comprised of goose poop.
- Gear: Nikon D700
