A Balloon and the Smokey Sunrise

This morning, I was up just after sunrise and thought for sure I had missed any passing balloons.  The air is still smoke filled and the sunrise shrouded in red and smoke.

So when a balloon materialized out of the smoke haze next to the rising sun, I took some photos.  It was beautiful.  The sunrise was shrouded red with the smoke from countless wildfires.


  1. Stunning photos! My prayers go out to you and all those in danger of this frightening array of fires. Take care!

    1. Thanks Darla. Staying inside, doing deep cleaning today, away from the smokey air.

  2. Those photos really say it all. I hope there is rain soon.

  3. Wow. What an amazing start to the day.
    Glad to hear you will be inside. Stay safe.
    I so hope those fires are brought under control quickly.

  4. What a sky...looks awesome.
    Stay safe.
