Hot Air Ballon Ring Toss

Hot Air Ballon Ring Toss

One of the activities held during the week-long Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque is a competition that requires pilots to fly into the launch field and place a small plastic ring on one of the poles placed on the field. Pilots have to choose a launching spot away from the field and located so that prevailing winds will take them over the launch field.

A ringer scores a prize of $4,000.

Nikon D300
1/250s f/8.0 at 200.0mm iso800 full exif
