Reno Balloon Race 2006
My ‘Reno Balloon Race” video has received over 800,000 views so far on YouTube. It was my first time at the event and I arrived before dawn. After trudging around the grounds for an hour or so I finally found a good vantage point to view the action.
The balloons and the winds were perfect as the action stayed in view of my cameras for over two hours. The balloons are a ideal time-lapse subject because the movement is not readily apparent in real-time. Only through the time-lapse view do you see the shifting patterns and complex dance of the balloons.
