    The picture of the Red, White, and Blue Balloon was taken by me on Saturday evening June 7th, 2014. This balloon, 'Patriots Dream' was flwon by it's pilot Alan Jones from Preston Park, PA, this is where he landed on the other side of the pond. We were lucky enough to have the homeowners drive us back around the pond to retrieve the system. this picture was captured rather quickly using my iPhone 4S after I ran around the side of the house and stopped in my track due to the fact lack of a way to get to the balloon.

    The 2nd place picture of the Two tone Green and Black Balloon is actually a picture of my Balloon 'Dilly D' as I flew from the Oswego County Fairgrounds in Sandy Creek saturday morning. I flew for 1 1/2 hours that morning and landed on Scott Rd. in Ellisburg, NY
