Select photographer Michael Eudenbach's photos for Sunrise Trail were published in the winter issue of Rails to Trails magazine. Here is what Michael had to say about the shoot. "Being asked to shoot the "Sunrise Trail" in winter meant putting all the pieces together to tell the story in a single photo for the magazine cover: snow, sunrise, and people in action on the trail. It started out to be a winter weather waiting game. Ice storms and extreme cold temperatures had kept even hearty Mainer's indoors for weeks, but finally a fresh snowfall before a sunny weekend allowed it all to come together. Once arriving on the trail, I discovered why these converted old railroad routes make perfect skiing and biking trails, carving a beautiful path through coastal towns and the rugged woods. I hiked along with my camera, chased after snowshoers and skiers, dodged a few high speed snowmobiles, even brushed up on the Down East Maine accent. Turns out you can get there from here, if you stay on the trail!"
