    Part V: More Rainy Night Photos

    Sorry to be dragging this out for so long, but I've been spending quite a bit of time between experimenting with HDR and layers in photoshop with this next set of shots. For those of you who are still checking back on this thread, thanks for returning to see what I've been up to. I've still got a bit of a pile to wade through before I finish up with this, so I hope you'll keep checking back in the future.

    In the mean time, to really get the full effect of the next batch, please feel free to visit my flickr account at Flickr: WJMcIntosh's Photostream and click on the "View on black" option underneath the photo. One of the bummers about flickr is that everything is on that nasty white background and as this next set is a bit darker, it really brings out a bit more detail to see them on black. But only if you have time.

    So....where was I back on Christmas Eve? Ah yes. In the middle of a series of shots from 12/7/09 when instead of going straight home after work, I rushed over to the park to try to get a few more shots in the rain. In Part V, I had just taken a couple of shots of tomorrowland and had headed back into the hub. I paused as I got to the Partner's statue to grab a shot looking back at Main Street...





    ...before heading back to grab a few shots of the castle in the pouring rain. The Turkey legs looked tempting, but I felt bad for the poor CM huddled underneath his umbrella out in the cold...





    When I got to the castle, the sky was looking pretty ominous.






    It was coming down in buckets now, but I loved how the castle looked against that cold, December sky...






    I headed toward Frontierland next, pausing to take a shot of the Matterhorn against the stormy sky...





    Guests were huddling under the nearest umbrella to get out of the rain...





    A Frontierland icon watched silently from the shelter of the shooting gallery...





    One of the main reasons I love shooting in the rain is the reflection you get from the pavement throughout the park...





    Finally the storm began to break as I approached the Mark Twain Dock...





    And finally...to close out this section...I wanted to post a couple more shots of the Mark Twain and the Rivers of America before they disappear for 6 months behind refurb walls as the river is drained. This is easily my favorite area of the park, and I will really miss it while it is being worked on. Hopefully they will have it up and running again before June.







    (More to come...)

    Part VI: Tiana's Showboat Jubilee

    This next batch of shots was taken over several weeks while the Jubilee was running. It was easily one of my favorite shows that I've ever seen in Disneyland. I took quite a few, so I think I'll have to break these shots into two posts.


    Before the show, lining up in front of the Court of Angels...



    The parade gets under way...







    Showtime!




























    The size of the crowd varied, but usually, a fair amount of people showed up for each performance...







    There seemed to be different teams or shifts of dancers as I saw different faces almost every time, but all of them were phenomenal.













    The umbrella guy is still my favorite...

    Thanks Row2k. Sorry it's taken me a while to get the rest of my shots up. I had a great holiday season, but it kept me crazy busy. I'm hoping to finish up this thread within the next couple of weeks...before Spring!

    Thanks Coheteboy. That may just be my favorite so far in this thread. I took it just after a storm broke and was able to get just a smattering of the sunset. I used a bit of HDR and blended a couple of layers to try to keep the sky from getting overblown after bringing up the foreground. Glad you liked it.

    Thanks, Aashee, for checking out these shots even through the thread has been around for awhile now. It's good to know that some folks are still coming back to check for anything new.

    Thanks, OP. I've appreciated your support and advice during the past couple of years. We should start "The Royal Order of Those Who Have Been Kicked Out of Multiple Areas Of The Park By Security After Disneyland Has Concluded It's Operational Day" and see how many we could get to join. We photography delinquents should stick together.

    Same here.

    The park would be doing itself a big favor and service to its guests by continuing this show this summer when the ROA refurb is finished.

    My! How often does one see the absence of a Matterhorn line?




    Talk about colorful and crisp. These performers look to be doing one awesome dance!








    This is my favorite shot of all. Don't think I've ever viewed a more dramatic photo of Tomorrowland. The nightime park setting in conjunction with the seemlessly blended in clouds....masterful.

    Part VII - More Jubilee Shots

    Just a few more to round out the Jubilee section. I took a few in December while they were doing a commercial shoot in front of NOS:





















    The rest are shots that were taken on different days from different locations, including Tom Sawyer's Island, The Hungry Bear, and Tarzan's Treehouse...

    Beautiful photos Mac Daddy. I really dig the rainy day shots... It's rare to see 'the happiest place on earth' in such an ominous light!
