Notes

A graduated neutral density filter helps even out the exposure of the direct and reflected balloon images, and a polarizer can be oriented to reduce the sun's glare on the balloon while not interfering with the reflection.

Description

For years a group of ballooning enthusiasts held a fishing derby from their aircraft at Prosser Reservoir. They still meet every Summer to compete in various events over the lake, often touching down, hopefully lightly, with their wicker baskets resting on the calm surface.
