When leaving the Viper ride, you can view the Raging Bull ride (which I never got on this time). Waited several  cycles to try and capture train on this part of the track. The trees help to obscure the sun and provide some dark areas to add to the view.

Here's a close-up view of the Raging Bull track and a train heading down a curved slope. You can get amazingly close to these rides and still be safe. (Just don't go where the sign warns silly people to stay out.)

The Viper roller coaster ride. Bright objects like the sun play havoc with the digital camera sensors. One technique is to have the subject obscure it. Nice view of big slope I'll experience once I get on the ride.

Ship swing ride. Hard to capture large object obscured by trees. I tried various angles while waiting in line.

I was in luck when I walked past the Viper entrance. They were just opening it up so I grabbed it and got on the second train. Normally I don't like the dust in my eyes when I ride this. No dust this time. Tried various angles and capturing a train in motion as it flew by. A roller coaster has lots of bright and dark areas to balance out. Plus backlit by the sun.

Fall colors highlight park entrance. Excellent day for amusement park attendance. Park extended hours to 10 PM though I left at around 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM completely worn out.

Once I left the Dark Knight ride it was dark. This was the best swings ride photo I captured. Bright lights and dark background make a night time photography challenge.
