The contrast between the delightful, colorful night scene with its smiling moon and brightly colored stars on the balloon and the daytime setting for the ascension adds to the interest of this hot air balloon capture. The balloon was photographed at the annual International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in October, 2014. Though both the Sandia and the Manzano mountains can be seen from the launch site, this background is a replacement and captures neither of those ranges.
