Photo of the Day (8.4.10)

Every time I see a hot air balloon I want to burst into song. All I can hear is “Up, Up and Away” by Fifth Dimension, and I get a strange urge to don bell bottoms and break out my old tie-dyed t-shirts (yes, I still have them). While this isn’t quite reflective on a 1970s trip, this photo of a hot air balloon festival sure is, well festive.

This photo, taken by Jillian Logee, is titled “Ascending Explosion” and was taken over Göreme, Cappadocia, Turkey. Between the colors of the balloons, the undulations of the hills, the contrasting colors of the landscape, we don’t know where to look first. But whatever man, it’s totally groovy…
