Teepees in the SouthWest

While traveling out in the Southwest, I found this little store.  Behind the store were these teepees.  I love the clouds rolling in.

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.

Flying High Above

While flying high in the sky over New Mexico, I captured this image of the other hot air balloons around us.  Being up in a balloon is AWESOME!

HDR- Santa Fe

While in Santa Fe, NM., I shot this roof top.  It was OK, but it was lacking something.  I added HDR to add grain and then added boarder.

In the end, I like it.  What do you think?

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.

HDR Old Truck

While traveling in the SouthWest, I found this old truck in a small field.  It was just begging to be photographed and then being turned into a HDR image.

It got its wish.  This is one of my first, and favorite, HDR shots.

Leave me your feedback and comments.  And those who really like this image, prints are available at FineArtAmerica, http://fineartamerica.com/featured/hdr-old-truck-joe-myeress.html

 

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.
