400 Flags~The Field of Honor
Made by Vicki Lund Photography
Click Here for Lightbox bit.ly/nbvXhY The Exchange Club of Auburn organized the Field of Honor. The group works with youth encouraging leadership and to help prevent child abuse. Organizers say the flag display is in honor of our Veterans and serves as a teaching tool for the next generation as a reminder that freedom comes at a cost. These flags are being sold to raise money for the youth program, they will remain standing through the Memorial weekend.

This is the 2005 Great Falls Balloon Festival. This launch was at 6 in the morning. That is very early in the day for me to be climbing a mountain. I was there half an hour before the launch. I got up at 5am, for a 5:30am departure, to climb a mountain and be prepared for a 5:45am sunrise and 6am balloon launch. Normally I get up around 8am.

These were taken on the 1st morning of the festival. Since it was too foggy, most balloons didn't go up. There was a lot of time creative close up shots. I didn'y rotate most of these, you get to view them as I did, enjoy! Taken at a slow shutter speed to show the motion of the balloon blowing up using a high powered fan.

This was after we descended onto the field. Shortly after this we dispursed, and went in different directions. Some of us saw each other again throughout the morning. Taken in Lewiston Maine during the 1st morning of the Great Falls Balloon Festival 2008.

This is the more Auburn side of the tresle / river reflected in Travis's eye. Copying an image by CateForgotten of her own eye. I used someone elses eye and caught reflections of different things but it's the same basic idea.
