Balloon Rise Sunrise
  Balloon Rise Sunrise
Balloon Rise Sunrise
Mass Ascension on Saturday October 13th. Sandia Mountains in the background with sun rising at 7:28 a.m. Usually the Special Shapes launch last (if at all..some just stay tethered)....what a glorious sight this is. It just takes your breath away and you really have to focus on photographing! I found myself at times just standing there and staring....Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Hi Patricia..I've missed so many of your Albuquerque balloon shots! What wonderful photos! And what an amazing number of balloons in the sky! It must have been a sight to behold!

Oh, you're just like me! I do the same thing - standing over a great subject and then in the glory of the moment, forget to shoot! What an incredible sight - don't use the word "awesome" much - but that's the only word for this remarkable sight! Good shooting!

Would you look at all those balloons! My gosh! Great shot, Patricia. There are more total balloons in that sky then have ever lifted off in all the balloon festivals Las Cruces has ever had put together! LOL! Albuquerque is the bomb when it comes to ballooning. Beautiful capture!

Thank you so much Thomas & Renee.....I will get back there in a few years....so many other places to see in between...but this was "killer".....the most amazing sight....but the fact that you can walk in amongst the balloons and talk with the pilots and crews is a definitely plus....being up close is so sweet! Than you both for your kind words & viewing...have a glorious day today.....

Thank you so much Nadia....That morning there were about 200 balloons that launched. The previous Sunday there were over 500...I can't imagine...that was a sight....but this was breathtaking too....over the period of the week that the festival is held some of the balloonists leave....so probably the first weekend is the best to attend....
