Remarks & Notes 
While this shot isn't exactly what I wanted it is as close as I have gotten after 18 months and 6 different attempts. It is difficult to fly the drone here as it can and usually is windy, hence the name Windy Corner. On this day thee was very little wind and I was initially set up more to the right and quite a bit lower looing straight up the canyon. Unfortunately battery life isn't long on these units so I had to return to base only to have the train appear on my way back to my landing area. I was at least able to grab this shot on the return flight. I will need to try again some other day.
