“Big Thunder Mountain Night”
by Tim Devine

As requested by @ButterflyBrie on Twitter.  This picture is one of my all-time favorites from Big Thunder Mountain.  A very accommodating cast-member allowed me to tripod up while in the queue during Extra Magic Hours and this is the result.  While I would have liked to have shot this one at ISO 100, the shutter speed would have been a whopping 60 seconds.  Even with a tripod, that kind of speed is nearly impossible to use and not run into other problems, such as sensor heat or color shift.  It might be time to revisit this shot with my new Canon 1dMk4.

Technical Details:  Canon 5d, Canon 24-105 f/4L, ISO 400, 15 sec, f/5.6
