Astro Orbiting the Morning Sun - One More Disney Day #5 - Disneyland

Another SUNRISE shot from early morning, Leap Day 2012 from Disneyland's One More Disney Day. Seeing the sun come up and throw its golden light on the Hub and Tomorrowland was an awesome sight...


Note that, despite this early hour, (6:51 AM) the lines for Astro Orbiter, Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blaster and Star Tours are full...proving that despite the awesomeness of a sunrise at Disneyland, we photographers were only a miniscule portion of the visitors that day...

    Gorgeous. That light on the pavement is beautiful.

    I'm all full of regrets for not getting there in the morning. I thought for sure it would take forever to get in. But from what you told me, it went fairly quickly, resulting in catching these once in a lifetime (or four year) shots.

    Awsome sunrise. The couple on the left seem to fit perfectly.

    I came very close to making the drive in to just catch the sunrise before I took off for Tahoe, but I needed to get my kids up for school, etc. REALLY wish I could have been there, if only for that hour or so after the sun came up. This is gorgeous!

  • Brendan Meier 3y

    So cool! The positioning of the sun and the two people on the opposite side of frame really work well here. Looks like you found some great angles that morning!

    The light on the pavement does indeed look great.
  • Jeff Hamm 3y

    The composition and symmetry in this are outstanding, not to forget or overshadow that amazing sunrise! I listened to the OMDD show yesterday with you and Justin, well done. You sucessfully created a monster in me that will storm the parks if they do this again in four years. :) Great shot!
