Only alittle more than 4 months until this years annual Balloon Fiesta in Albuqerque, NM. Or as their website states, as of this posting, only
128 days, 23 hours, 45 minutes, and 45 seconds until the first lift off of 2013.
Here is an image I took at the Matheson Hammock Park just south of Miami, FL. These are mangrove trees at low tide. Within an hour the water level was at 12″. Image was processed in ACR and then in OnOne Suite 7 to add more detail in foreground.
