Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – Sean Spansel
During our trip in 2014, the Mine Train began soft opening a few days after our trip ended, which was a major bummer. I went into our trip in 2015 definitely ready to ride and shoot the newest attraction in Fantasyland. While walking past Be Our Guest Restaurant, I noticed a wonderful glowing sky behind the mountain. Using my newly purchased 12mm Fisheye and it’s ability to easily be shot at 1/10th of a second handheld, I went to shooting. I think the curvature of the track, along with curvature of the lens, makes a pleasing image. The first few shots were of the mountain alone, a train coming down, etc, but nothing stood out to me. Then I decided to drag the shutter a little and give the train some motion and here’s the image that came from it.
This image is my first and ONLY explored image on Flickr, so it holds a special place in my “portfolio.” I hope you enjoy it, as much as I have.
