A hot air balloon flight from the Georgetown Texas Airport on a nice November morning. The pilot was Joe Reynolds. I attached a GoPro camera on a mop handle to his gondola frame. The flight started at the small airport, flew over subdivisions, highways, a cemetery, the San Gabriel River, a school and finally over farmland where they landed.
