Let the chase begin! It is amazing how quickly these professionals can inflate and fly those balloons.
There they go....chasing a balloon out over Middletown during that evening's competition at Challenge Ohio.
Some of the contestants getting off the ground. The contest this evening is a chase after the first balloon up.
No, those aren't birds flying around or smudges on my lens. Those are skydivers performing behind the hot air balloon competition that just started. It was amazing to see.
Ohio Challenge 2013 in Middletown, Ohio. Over 30 balloons in competitions all weekend long. Perfect day for a hot air balloon chase.
Meeting at the mound.
