Why not ask the photographer - there's a contact button next to each photo.

it appears to be a hot air baloon. Funny picture! I'll bet the screeners did a double-take on that one!

First time I saw that photo I told myself that, "there must not be alot of new submissions to a.net". But after realizing it is a hotair balloon it's a pretty cool picture..

I think Phil Derner (BigPhilNYC) attempted something like that a few months back and got a severe flaming.  Laugh out loud I think it was just a regular model tho...

It's digital, look at the fringing around the edges of the trees in the uppper right.

Cool picture though, had to look twice before figuring out it was a balloon!

If you're confused with the photo, try pressing the correct button. When the page loads, look under what category it's in. That photo was under the blimp category.

Hope that helps!  Smile (Not very sure if it's very accurate though.)
