This beautiful balloon caught my eye as it drifted by the coloring so matched the clouds, and sky. The sunrays shinning down through the clouds in front of the Sandia Mountains just made the whole picture come together. This was taken at the N. M. Balloon Festival 2009

While I was taking a balloon ride, these two balloons were side by side. Their reflections appeared in the water as they gently floated above the Rio Grande River in New Mexico. Thought it would be an awesome photo and it was.

Amazing job on this shot! The water reflection and colors are great! I only wish I'd seen it sooner so I could have voted for it!

An optical illusion of my friend reaching out to hand a flower to a large butterfly. The flower and butterfly are actually a hot air balloon!

Awww - my home town. I don't miss the hustle and bustle of this busy area, but I do miss sights like that. I agree - that would be a winning picture in a contest. Thanks for sharing! (12/11/2008)
