Special Shapes Day at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Oct 7 2011

Sadly, this was not a good day for the Special Shapes. Besides being cold, it was wet. The weather was not in the favor of the pilots as it had rained all night, and was drizzling into the wee morning hours. Eventually, the rain let up for about an hour, and a few of the Special Shapes and teardrops tethered on static line for the spectators to view. I dressed in many layers, but my fingertips were frozen and numb. It was difficult to use the camera, but I did manage a few nice shots. Weather is to improve over this coming weekend as the Fiesta comes to a close for 2011.
