The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race was this past weekend in Natchez, Mississippi. I planned to drive to the Vidalia side of the Mississippi River and watch the balloons launch behind the twin bridges. It was a nice day with clouds in the sky, and the river with the bridges would have made a great setting for some hot air balloon shots. Unfortunately, it was too windy for the balloons to fly, and the afternoon flights were cancelled. Still wanting to make the best of my 2 hour drive, I stuck around until sunset and took a few shots of the bridges and the river.
