Dawn

At the hot air balloon liftoff site this past weekend there was a wonderful sky. I only wished at the time that they were already up and flying.

Mouse over to see the out of camera original. (Tutorial at right.)



Shot with Pentax K-7 at 18mm, edited in Photoshop.

this is one of the tricks i've learned from visiting your site, for that i thank you and for all the inquiries that you have answered on my baby journey in photography. im glad that me and my wife have met you in this wonderful land of photo blogging.

yes, we're off to hospital now, pls pray for her, she'll stay there for 5 day and around 3 months at home to fully recover (that part -long 3 months- you have to pray for me. lol)
