Albuquerque, New Mexico – Day 2

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhomes is still parked at the Sandia Casino about 10 miles north of Albuquerque. I expecting to be here another couple of days.

Yesterday was the last day of the annual balloon fiesta. I took the following ten photos at about 7:30 AM.

I decided to try an experiment since I’ve had so many positive comments/emails about my photos shot in the watercolor mode recently. In this experiment I tried to take the photo in the regular mode and then as much as possible take a similar photo in the watercolor mode. So when you look at these ten photos the odd-numbered photos are in the regular mode and the even ones are in the watercolor mode.

I’ve always loved photos where the colors are vivid and jump out and grab you. That’s what the watercolor mode photos do to me. So today, below the photos I’m including a little poll and I would appreciate your voting on one of the three choices. I’ll let you know the results tomorrow.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…











Enjoying colorful hot air balloons is another joy of a full-time RVer!

  1. I simply love the effect of the watercolor mode. I’ve gotta find out if my camera (Nikon D3100) can do this too.
