Go with Canon to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta!

A bit pricey, but if you have ever wanted to photograph the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in style, here is your chance. Canon live learning has the details here:

If you have never been, the ABF is almost tailor made for photography. Bright colors, interesting shapes, interesting people, breakfast burritos and it all happens at the golden hour! *

 

Even if you don't go the Canon route, It is a great experience.

 

 

*Alas, it is also one of the few times that *everyone else* is out there at morning golden hour with you!

Here are some of my examples - not the best - but you get the idea:

I have a BIG Balloon Fest locally in Sept but it conflicts with my radio control event schedule AND I'm not an early riser. Definately colourful though with lots of interesting shapes & styles, but also very weather dependant.
