The 41st International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Hello there, thanks for stopping by,
On the week of October 5th this year, My Father and I flew in to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to photograph the annual International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. The nine-day event draws more than 700,000 people from around the world, both balloonists and spectators alike, to the Albuquerque area. As a matter of fact, this Balloon Fiesta is the most photographed balloon event in the world.
As this is my second visit to this event, my goal was to shoot moments and scenes that other photographers do not pay attention to. On this visit, I concentrated more on capturing moments with dramatic or minimal lighting, which requires me to arrive in the balloon park usually an hour before dawn or sunset. The whole trip ended up tiring me out more than it should, because of the lack of sleep. But, I'm pretty happy with some of the photos that I got from the trip.
Thanks for visiting,
