In “Hooked On Balloons,” one of our favorite pictorials from the last few years, field editor Larry Reichenberger takes a bird’s-eye look at the serene, almost-silent sport of hot-air ballooning. In this spectacular shot, balloons lift off over the Yampa River valley near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In his article, Larry remarks on a “…silence as you’ve not heard before. With the balloon moving, you don’t even hear the wind.”


Here at The Furrow and Homestead magazines, we love looking through the photos our field editors capture on their travels. Unfortunately, there’s only so much space in our print magazines. So with “The Occasional Photo,” we’ll showcase some of the inspiring photography we just couldn’t make room for in the magazine. We may dust off some classic shots from past articles, too. Enjoy, and check back for more from “The Occasional Photo.”
