Occupational Hazard

As promised, a photo of my sunrise photo shoot.  If only I'd looked in the starless sky before I departed I might have just slept in.  But I didn't notice the overcast sky until I was almost at the field.  I arrived at 6:20am, with sunrise coming at 6:32.  I was surprised to find someone manning the parking booth at that early hour.  There is a tulip festival going on this month, but they don't start charging for parking until 9am, long after photography time.  Turns out there was a scheduled hot air balloon event, and the place was just crawling with photographers.  I just had to laugh when I saw this scene.  Best laid plans...  I would estimate over 100 photographers in the entire field which I could probably capture if four or five photos.  We were tripping over each other in this uninspiring light.

Those colors pop so much I was immediately drawn to them and not the people. The rows of color reminds me of a braided rug my mother once had.
