It was a long day of waiting in endless lines under the hot Florida sun but it’s all worth it to see the smile on my daughter’s face. It’s just an added bonus when I can take advantage of the moment to witness a beautiful sunset and photograph it too. I was definitely in the right place at the right time for this shot as we walked past the castle on our way to dinner. I was in awe with what I saw so I decided to skip dinner, with permission, so that I could take this image. It’s composed of 7 individual photographs ranging from 6 to 25 seconds layered together using Photoshop and Photomatix. (Canon 5D Mark iii, 16-35L @ 16mm, F10 and ISO50) I would later learn that tripods are not allowed at the Magic Kingdom so I consider myself extremely lucky that no one stopped me from shooting this scene.
