Photographed on Australia day 2010 at Parramatta Park. Arrived at the park in the dark with camera and tripod at 5.00am. A cloudy morning did not offer the sunrise and sky I was hoping for, so it was time to look around for a different angle on the hot air ballooning. Nikon D90, 1/1600sec, f71,
ISO 200, focal length 56mm- Tripod.
Various blending modes and a Topaz Photo Pop filter was used to enhance the image.
