Daily Photo Tour - Astro Orbiter


One evening at the park, we found ourselves at the entrance to Tomorrowland, plotting our next move. Sunset was really creating some beautiful scenes, and we wanted to make the most of it. As it often goes, there was something pretty amazing right beneath our noses, or above our heads in this case. The sky was dichotomized by a streaking cloud, reminiscent of a rocket's exhaust, and it was an awesome background for the Astro Orbiter. I waited for Astro Orbiter's rockets to land, and snagged this shot.

Is there any way that you could have possibly taken an HDR shot of the facade of Star Tours before it closed? I'm such a fan of the ride AND your photography, I would love to see any photos if you did!

Hey, thank you very much. We did take some shots of the entrance. We never got a chance to take pics inside because it can be difficult to set up and people don't like it all too well when you get in their way. We will get to work on what we've got!
