The balloon fiesta in Albuquerque is an annual week-long treat for the locals, and the balloonists.
We went down on Saturday morning early, to see more balloons than I could image heading up into the blue blue sky.
Even for amateurish photographers like me, it was like shooting fish in a barrel – colourful shapes, sharp light from a low angle, clear skies. A great day out (except for the people in the balloon that ended up caught on the top of a 500’ radio mast).
