Photo of the day: Sunrise fire

My favorite event at the Albany Art and Air Show is the daily sunrise lift-off. They always time it so that the lead balloon goes up right at sunrise, with the American flag draped below it in the dawn light and someone singing the National Anthem. Add to that the flare of the propane fire and the glow inside the envelope of the balloon, place it directly overhead in a clear blue sky, and it makes for a compelling image!

Red, white, and blue dawn
