Backyard Balloon Landing

So after waking the kids, packing their lunches, and sending them off to school, it is a peaceful morning ... when I hear a "whoosh, whoosh, whoosh" from outside the open window. I realize it's a nearby hot-air balloon ... when they are close, you almost always hear them before you see them. I look to the West ... and it is coming right at my house ... and is very low. It drifts slightly to the South and he sets down in a skinny section of open space right behind my back yard - first time ever in the 10+ years I have lived here in Lafayette, Colorado - bummer my kids had already left for school.

P.S. Picture taken with a Canon 50D - maybe a Canon 7D next time! ;-)
