When a Web Designer goes on vacation...
The photos you see here were shot by Don Peterson, the freelance web designer behind this website. They were all photographed at the 2015 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta on one of the most beautiful sunny days of early October. This joyous event is held annually in Albuquerque, New Mexico, typically during the second week in October. No matter how old you are, this stunning display of over 500 colorful hot-air balloons taking flight will bring out an unrestrained childlike glee!

As a web designer, I am highly motivated by color. The Balloon Fiesta is a melange of glorious color, and one of the most photogenic events in the United States. I have added a gallery of large size images I photographed at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta below. They are free to download and use as you wish. All I ask is that you give me a link and credit if you use them on any other website. The images below are typically 1600 pixels wide or 1200 pixels tall. I'll be adding more images in the weeks ahead as time allows. Subscribe to my newsletter (form at bottom of page) to receive notification when new photos are added. New images are added weekly.
