Balloon Fiesta

The annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta starts this week.

Purple People Eater

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.

Up, Up, and Away

I thought I would share one of my favorite images.  It is from the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in New Mexico.  I took this as I was flying over the balloon field.

Fisheye of Balloons

Taken at the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in New Mexico with a fisheye adapter, this gives the viewer an idea of the hot air balloon activity that was going on.  Also, gives you an idea how a fish would view the balloon activity had they been there.

 

Colorful Sky

Something bright and colorful for the weekend.  This was taken at the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in NM.

Balloon to the Moon

High above the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in NM, this balloon heads for the moon.

Balloons fill the NM skies

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.
