Why Didn't They Think of This Sooner? Up, Up And Away!
Canadian artist Calder Moore has created a captivating and immersive design filled with rich, vibrant colour. The compelling tilt-shift perspective uses strategic sizing and placement of the balloons - a larger balloon extending beyond the field of the coin, and progressively smaller balloons disappearing in the distance - to create an exceptional depth of field that draws the viewer in, as if they are in a basket, gazing out at dozens of other balloonists out for a ride down a mountain valley. Majestic mountains in the distance enhance the sense of depth, while a red-and-white maple leaf balloon salutes Canada’s rich ballooning tradition.
