Spent the WHOLE week trying to come up with an idea for a balloon image. I was about to give in and not enter, but then I was on my way to shoot for the next challenge, and stopped by the lake by my house. Had a white balloon, had a frozen lake, had a beautiful sky and time. So this is the result of not giving up too soon.

Like this a lot. B/W is a surprising choice for a balloon shot, but combined with the dreaminess of the overall image, it works well.

I love the simplicity of this. Even love the processing that takes away from the simplicity.

It's a beautiful image.
