Taking Off

This photo of Hot Air Balloons taking off was shot in Hampi, you can see the ruins of Hampi in the background. I've added texture to the image.

    A little birdie told me,
    Although I don’t know why,
    That if I were to look up,
    Way up into the sky,
    I’d see some wondrous planets,
    The moon and sun and stars –
    There before my very eyes
    Blazed Jupiter and Mars!
