Painted Water

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Painted Water
Painted Water
This is a hot air balloon reflection on our lake in Lake Havasu City during the Hot Air Balloon Fest. This is not a filter, the only editing done was slight saturation to bring color out a tad more. Otherwise..it is what it is!

One more reason for all of us to look beyond the beauty of the obvious... to the water and the reflections created by its own palette. Congratulations for seeing and capturing both a fantastic image and the Gold!
