This is the Purple People Eater Balloon flying high at the annual Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in NM.
Hard not to smile when you see this.
The skies fill with balloons at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in NM. Every year they have 500+ balloons filling the skies. Everywhere you looked, there were balloons just waiting to be photographed.
I have been there several years, never get tired of it. It is so colorful and peaceful. I even flew 2x. I’ll be posting some of those shots soon.
