It can be a fun challenge to find places to shoot the Ski Train heading west in the morning light. I like this spot at Plainview. The cut on the east side of the tracks blocks the direct sunlight from hitting the lens. The morning sun does a nice job lighting up the side of the Ski Train as it is nearing the halfway point on the journey west.
