Lakeside Ballooning

Photo taken at Lake Cullulleraine near Mildura in rural Victoria, Australia. I'd skipped on the afternoon flight due to work and missed the chance to do a "splash & dash" on the lake. D'oh!

Photo was taken with my Galaxy SIII with no post-editing at all. Not bad for a phone-cam. :)

You can see more of these pix at Flickr.
