During the half-decade we have lived in Albany, Oregon, there have been some dramatic sunrises, moonrises and sunsets which I have been fortunate enough to capture with a camera. Once in a while the clouds are just right, the light is just right, and I am in the right place at the right time — then the magic begins!

Over a period of one-and-a-half years, some awesome things happened with this balloon sunrise photo! Not only did it win 1st place in the monthly competitions of the Valley Viewfinders Camera Club, not only did it win 1st place in the "Events" category in the Fifth Annual Albany Photography and Video Contest of the Albany Visitors Association, but it was also featured on the cover of the Albany Visitors Association's Annual Visitor Guide for 2013! Who woulda thunk?
