Images and Words Week 125: Twilight

Greetings from Amy and welcome to week #125 of Images and Words!  My theme for this week is "Twilight" which can be either sunrise or sunset.  I expect you all will thoroughly enjoy this theme!  Here is my entry:

I took this photo last week at an "Evening Glow" event. The darker the sky becomes the more spectacularly the balloons glow!  But it also becomes more difficult to shoot because the balloons are moving.  Yes, my camera was on a tripod but that doesn't help stop motion blur of the balloons.  Still, I got some good photos.  I particularly like this photo of "Martha's Mink" burning and glowing so spectacularly with "Free Spirit" in the background and "BOB (Big Old Balloon)" in the foreground both looking shadowy.  I think it goes fairly well with the quote.

Here are the rule for playing along.

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words. 

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here. 

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.
