Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona

My 8-shot panorama photograph of Horseshoe Bend, Page Arizona, won 2nd place in the Open Color category of the November competition of the Chester County Camera Club. Two of the tripod legs were 2 inches from the edge of a rock with a 1,000 foot drop-off. I had to stand that close to the edge to include the bend of the Colorado River.

Photo data is f/22, 1/13 sec, ISO 100, 21mm, Canon 7D with 15-85 lens.

Albuquerque, N.M. Balloon Fiesta

Albuquerque, N.M. Balloon Fiesta. The "Dawn Patrol" was twelve balloons that launched prior to dawn. They had to stay flying until sunrise so they could see where to land. We were surrounded by balloons. Look at how crowded the balloons are, on the ground. Many of the balloons went up, moved around this portion of Albuquerque, then landed back on the launch field. The winds in Albuquerque move in different directions at different altitudes, so the skillful pilots use this to land back at the launch site. The man in the zebra outfit is a launch director. Each pilot is told when to launch.

Albuquerque, N.M. Balloon Fiesta

Albuquerque, N.M. Balloon Fiesta. We were surrounded by balloons, so this photo shows only a small fraction of the total balloons. Look at how crowded the balloons are, on the ground.
