Balloons show their spectacular colors against the blue sky and white sands at the annual September Balloon Festival.

You can't tell if this is snow or white sand. The blue sky is incredible.

Thanks for your comment, Jim!

Yes, the New Mexican sky can be very blue! I think it has to do with the clear atmosphere. The sand is also quite white, but my images that have actual snow at the monument tend to show the sand as slightly less blue. The bright light and bright colors make it a photographers wonderland.
