There is a Intercity express train to Colombo at 6.15 a.m from Kandy railway station. This is a good choice as it is not a crowded train. You can have lot of space to take photos and enjoy the view.
However there is another train leaving at 6.20 a.m. It is also a normal train and cannot be guarantee about the crowd.
