The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is THE most photographed event in the world. It’s nearly impossible to stop taking photos. Every second provides for a new scene that must be captured.
Can you imagine photographing this event with film? After 36 shots you’d have to change your film roll. I’m so grateful for digital cameras … you can just keep snapping away. AND, you can take video too!
This time next year I should have a new camera, and you can bet your megapixels I will be taking all the photos I can (with the only restriction being the size of my memory card).
Below is a small sampling of the 227 photos I took at this year’s fiesta (within a 3.5-hour timeframe).
Please be sure to also visit my Weekly Watermelon blog for more pictures of balloons with a Sandia Mountain backdrop.
