For my recent series of nighttime photographs that feature spinning attractions, I set out to capture unique images from an unusual perspective or location. With this in mind, I revisited the Astro Orbitor at Disneyland park the other night for one last “spin” – this time from above Tomorrowland, on the former PeopleMover/Rocket Rods track.
This first photo is more of a twilight photo, but I chose it because you can see the curved horizon, which would have been concealed in darkness if shot later.
This photo was chosen because it combines Sleeping Beauty Castle with the Astro Orbiter in the foreground, a view I cannot recall ever seeing before.
In this photo, I was able to combine the fireworks show and Astro Orbitor. I especially like how the fireworks appear to be going right through the red light streaks.
