Aspen Grove 2013

A highlight of Aspen Follies at Aspen Grove is the balloon catch – they shoot water balloons into the air with a slingshot and whoever catches one (without it breaking) wins a soda. I was holding my camera to capture some of the fun and happened to catch one smashing into the lens.

Some slow-motion clips on the GoPro:
