Dawn PatrolAUTHOR'S NOTE: This last week of 2010 I am highlighting my 5 best photographs of 2010. I hope you enjoy a week of remembering back as I re-take you through my journey of chasing the light through 2010. These are in no particular order. Enjoy!


This is a photo made during the 49th Annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. This was the last day of this year’s festival and I was there for what they refer to as Dawn Patrol.

The balloons created a really interesting scene as the sun began to make itself known over the Sandia Mountains to the East of the Balloon Grounds in Albuquerque.

Because of the light from the balloons, this was a hand held shot for those of you curious about such things. This really was a great way to end the Balloon Fiesta.
