I spent some time Sunday near the river hoping to get photos of the hot air balloons. Instead, I mostly watched birds as the balloons floated overhead and down the other side of the valley. To see images of the balloons from Saturday go to my Reflected Light blog

Methow River






At home, this Hairy Woodpecker was oblivious to the balloons landing across the valley.Hairy Woodpecker


  1. Beautiful action shot! What type of camera setup did you use to get the shot of the ducks in flight? Mine always come out blurry no matter what I try.

  2. I used a panning technique for that shot. I got the ducks in my viewfinder and followed along as they flew by. It’s good for moving subjects. You need to be aware of your shutter speed.
