Attended my first fiesta here in Albuquerque and it was awesome! Freezing cold, crazy traffic, lots of walking, huge crowds, but well-worth it.

Thanks for looking, and if anyone else wants to add their fiesta shots to this thread, by all means!

I took out my 5D3 and XE1. Fuji had the 18-55 on it, the 5D3 was either the 17-40 or 70-300 (non-L). Most of the Fuji shots are actually SOOC JPEGs with maybe very minor tweaks (crops, dust spots)


I tried for some non-typical "huge mass of balloons" shots, lots more to process, thanks for looking!

So went again today, took the kids.

1) Kids didn't mind waking up at 4AM to go, but my 5-yr-old son lost patience in about an hour and wanted to leave.

2) So most of these photos are actually from the parking lot, where I kept the van running for warmth, kids played, and I got some shots.

3) There were clouds!!. Yay! Makes the skies look a bit more interesting.

All of these are XE1 and 18-55mm. Wish I had the 55-200 for a few shots, but oh well.

The last shot was as I was driving home, about to enter I-40, to give an idea of the number of balloons in the sky

Outstanding images!
I've been to the Fiesta three times and was always absolutely thrilled.
From your shots, I assume they still let everyone wander among the balloons during mass ascensions.
If they ever stop that, it'll kill the Fiesta for photogs.
Here are a few of my images from 10+ years ago.
Slide film- scanned and processed.
