Balloon Glow
12 October 2013 Sam Rua

Balloon Glow

Albuquerque, NM

A fisheye view of the balloons at the north end of the field
at the 2013 Albuquerque International Balloon Festival. You
have to get the timing right to catch as many balloons lit up
as possible, which is dependent upon each balloon's state of
buoyancy. There were a few times where the crowd would do a
countdown and then a group of balloons would do a simultaneous
burn. Very cool. The Moon is also captured on the left side of the sky.

This is one of my favorite images I've captured with this lens so far.
