I wanted to share some images from the Albuquerque Balloon Fest 2012. It has been said that this is one of the most photographed events in the world. Having been there this past weekend, I can certainly attest to that. There were hundreds, maybe thousands of cameras of all types all around. Quite impressive.
The mass ascension, where all the 500+ balloons go up in the air, is something that’s definitely worth seeing. Although you have to be there by 6 am, this is a super fun and impressive sight. The colors, the shapes, and the amount of balloons makes this an absolute delight.
I’ll leave you with some of the images I captured.
