Several years ago, we went to San Diego's Wild Animal Park on vacation. I had just gotten my Nikon DSLR camera a few months before our vacation. So needless to say, I was still learning the ins and outs of it. As we were approaching to turn in to the parking lot (sitting in traffic) I leaned out of the car and snapped this photo. It's a hot air balloon that's in the park, that you can ride up in to see the whole area. Unfortunately, during our time there it got really windy and that ride was shut down. Anyway here's my entry for this weeks challenge.

This image spoke to me (for this challenge) "Do reach for the sky". I also loved this quote and thought it was fitting for the image and for our challenge.
I used Kim Klassen's Autumn Burst blending mode Hardlight at 83%.
