Coaster Eclipse (Explore #435)

Thrill seekers aboard Goliath at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, San Antonio. Yes, I was staring directly at the sun through the viewfinder for several minutes waiting to get this photo.


Thanks to my sis Michelle for leaving the pack to walk over here.


Lens is the FA43 Limited.

    leif_85 I stood there for a long time with my eye fixed on the sun through the viewfinder waiting for the coaster to pass...missed it several times before I got this one, as I had to keep adjusting the frame to place the sun along the rail.
