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.

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!
Here is a link to the official page for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, held at Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This annual event attracts hundreds of balloonists and thousands of spectators every October.

Taken at the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, N.M. 2008. The sun was just coming up as I caught this sight. I thought it was awesome.

So nice! Thanks for sharing. Did you get to ride in one of the balloons?
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)
