Balloon Fiesta

Another fall arrives, another balloon fiesta passes. I love the balloon fiesta’s light atmosphere. It is one of the few events in Albuquerque where most attendees are genuinely happy. Smiles and yawns, steaming food and brisk autumn air, the cold black of night chased as the morning sun slowly warms over the field. On this day, that beautiful sun spilled through the crowds dowsing everything in a warm glow.

Here the balloon crews work to fill the balloon with enough hot air to get it upright, the flames right at home amidst the fiery glow of morning light.

    I really like how well the flame stands out in this photo. That’s not an easy shot to make.
