The Story of Arendelle
Last weekend also marked the unveiling of a new addition to the Storybook Land Canal Boats. Towards the end of the ride, where the windmill from The Old Mill was situated, there is now the beautiful kingdom of Arendelle, home to Anna and Elsa from Frozen. In the mountains beyond is Elsa's ice castle. The portside palace is artfully recreated, and there are delightful bits of detail throughout.
I was only able to get nighttime shots, because I arrived too late to catch sunlight on this ride. But I'm moderately surprised and pleased that I was able to get pretty decent nighttime photos. I guess that's the benefit of fast glass (these photos were shot using my Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 prime lens) and a good full frame camera with high ISO capabilities (my Nikon D600). I hope you enjoy this newest addition to one of Fantasyland's classic attractions!
