A Desert Kaleidoscope At The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the Desert Kaleidoscope to see the hot air balloons dazzling at the skies at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta ― Canon Explorer of Light Ken Sklute shares with us some stunning images from Mass Ascension and Balloon glow at the event. But if you are thinking about visiting the festival there is still time, so get those picnic blankets and cameras ready to go see the hundreds of balloons floating and glowing up the New Mexico skies. Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta runs from October 1- 9, 2016 with Canon U.S.A., Inc., as the Presenting Sponsor of the festival. Check out Ken Sklute's tips and tricks and equipment recommendations before you go, to capture your experience on camera and make your own painting with light.
