My previous post on “things that spin in the night” was focused mostly on the Golden Zephyr with Mickey’s Fun Wheel in the background. I thought that it was time to put Mickey in the spotlight. This first photo was taken just 15 minutes after sunset, so there’s still some blue and pink in the sky. In addition, the dark clouds help make this photo more dramatic. I used a graded neutral density filter because I wanted to balance the light intensity between the lighter sky and the darker water.
This next photo exposure was 10 seconds long, a full 20 seconds shorter than the first. Since the attraction was stopping to load and unload guests, I used this shutter time to see what pattern would be captured with a shorter exposure. I was amazed by how the patterns changed with the different shutter speeds. When I was editing the photos, the patterns reminded me of a kaleidoscope.
I picked this next photo because for the composition and the vibrant colors, for these reasons this is my favorite photo of the three. Which one do you like most?
