Summer Challenge-Favorite Summer Memory

This one is easy.  Every summer in Lake George Village they had something called Moonglow in Battlefield Park across from the lake.  Basically some hot air balloons would blow up while tethered to the ground in a row and would light their burners off to music.  It always amazed me.  Loved it.  Today, I have a cousin who is a hot air balloon pilot.  He owns one balloon called The Phoenix and has another (yet to be named) balloon on the way.  I decided to recreate moonglow using his balloons.


Here is a close up of my rendition alongside a picture of his balloon at night.


Here is a peek at the rest of the challenge items...

  8. Amazing. I love, that you used black as a base, it's such a good contrast with other colors.
