The New Mexico Group would very much enjoy you Joining us in our latest challenge, offering a wonderful opportunity to display your Best! Each one of these moments is precious as well different ! the highlighted Event holding the destinction of the most photographed event of the Year. of course i do my share ! on average I get some 800 to 900 pictured during Fiesta Week to add to my collection X 21 years now! Straight up from the camera, brought up to 12MP size just for YOU ! so view Large ! even if it was a crabby Morning ! All were smilling ! Olympus E-510 with polarizer installed. Albuquerque, New Mexico USA. 2010 Annual Invitational Balloon Fiesta ! The report Was slightly less than 600 Balloons launching during the Fiesta, (2010) thats per day! also the crowd was less than a Million in Attendance ! the economy being given credit ! But you know what, you can’t please all the people all the time, Even though We do try! As a senior I get the treatment take the shuttle to the park as well lesser admittence Fee, So I get to hear many out of state visitors comments ! especially after the event, in four years, havent heard a complaint one! as for smiles I’ve lost count!

    lovely capture – mq

  • Thanks ! Mike feet planted firmly away from the crowd, but of course the reason for thier smiles can be felt as the roar sends of the special shapes, 600 launches, the imagination gets to moving, skyward, at least three times the size of normal homes! thus bigger smiles, yet concern, by the numbers, places to land get crowded! paul

    This is a grand view of the balloon fiesta. I attended a couple of years ago and it was great. Only problem was the wind. We missed the night glow because of it. This photo is beautiful and taken in wonderful light. I hope to return again someday. It’s a fun experience.

  • These stories I love to hear of, not the windy part though,, of course one never knows! but it do add to when it didn’t happen ! We were already there, and the launch was on hold, due to windy, but as good fortune turned out, it blew on through and out ! this was shortly there after, seem to recall, I try to prepare folks of the possibilities, of course that adds that I tell, I’m fortunate to live here, the stories and pictures keep adding up! Thanks Carol for the return visit, as we say Come on Back! it’s the only experience where all smile, Great experience ! ♥ paul
