Welcome to the 2016 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta


I attended the 2016 festival on Oct. 9.

At first, it seemed like a bad day for photos.

The sky was filled with dark clouds. And the sun appeared only briefly.

But actually, these conditions were fantastic because they led to dramatic sky scenes.

Enjoy.
