Mother Nature has her own bat signal

The Story

I took this several months back during a hot air balloon festival in Tigard, OR with +Nicole S. Young, +Brian Bonham, +Lars Gustafson, and +David Daniels. While the balloon glow was supposed to be the main attraction, Mother Nature decided to be a diva and show that up. This goes down as one of the cooler sunsets that I’ve been fortunate enough to see.

In terms of processing

Very simple stuff here. Some Warm Glow mixed with Daily Multivitamin and a vibrance boost. All in Perfect Effects 4 by +onOne Software.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.2.

    And to think we were all questioning whether or not it would be worth it to head out there because of Mother Nature. Such a diva.
