Up, Up and Away!

In a previous post about the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta I posted photos of balloons preparing to launch. The officials decided that the winds were calm enough for the launch, and the spectators watched as balloons rose into the beautiful blue sky. I have been taking photos at the Balloon Fiesta for years, and this year I decided to concentrate on photographing individual balloons.
