30 Foot High, and Rising

It’s hard to blend in when you are thirty feet high.

Balloon Fiesta Sunrise

Here is the moment during the Morning Ascension at the Balloon Fiesta when the rising sun burst above the Sandia Mountains. The special shaped hot air balloon is a penguin wearing a sunhat, a Hawaiian shirt, and a camera on a strap around its neck.  It parodies the tourists and spectators on the launch field. If you look below the sunburst, you will notice a guy in a red jacket who is posed in a similar manner and position as the penguin. Timing is everything.
