Today’s photo comes yet again from the 24 hour Magic Kingdom day that just passed, but it is a slight change from the wide landscape view at sunrise.

Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Vehicles

After capturing the amazing early blue hour and sunrise from within the park, I decided to switch lenses from the ultra wide over to my trusty Zeiss 55mm F1.8 prime to capture some other parts of the park with the gorgeous morning light that is normally not available to us. The Main Street Vehicles are another thing that we don’t normally get the opportunity to photograph here at Walt Disney World, since they do not run too often at the Magic Kingdom. If you don’t make it to the park within the first hour of being open, there is a good chance you won’t see them at all. Seeing as I feel like they add a ton to the atmosphere of the Main Street/Hub area, capturing some of them with some nice light was at the top of my non-landscape shot list. It is key when shooting at this hour to understand where the light is coming from. That happens to be from the Tomorrowland/Storybook Circus area. I wanted a slightly backlit photo here, so the subject is placed where the light is hitting it, but I am physically positioned so that there is a little bit of backlight glow. The long shadows that are a product of the low sun are awesome, and huge shout out to the Cast Member for giving a wave and a a smile. I think it’s the icing on the cake for the photo.

This Magic Kingdom shot was captured with the Sony a7 and the Zeiss 55mm F1.8 , both of which are available at our Amazon link. Thanks for looking!

    You are so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve read through a single
    thing like that before. So wonderful to find another person with some original
    thoughts on this subject. Really.. thanks for starting this up.
    This website is one thing that is needed on the internet,
    someone with a little originality!

    Beautiful shot of a “Disney Day” beginning quietly. I am headed to Paris Disneyland in a few days. Photos like yours make memories live. Thank you for that!
