Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta - Mark Venner Photography

Dawn Patrol 2013

The Dawn Patrol is all set for takoff on an absolutely clear and serene morning at the 2013 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The red white and blue balloon in the foreground is not burning at the time of this exposure, instead it is lit by a balloon that is "Glowing" from behind the camera's vantage point. NOTE: Overall exposure was increased by one stop to makeup for underexposure at the time the photo was taken and the highlights were dimmed slightly as well to more acurately reflect the scene as observed.
