  • The Photographers Ephemeris

    Sorry if this has been posted already, I couldn't find anything.

    The Photographer's Ephemeris

    This is an absolutely cracking free utility for landscape photography showing you the angles that the sun/moon rises and sets at any location you choose, using Google Maps.

    Sometimes a developer comes up with (a) a great idea and (b) implements it smoothly and concisely - good software does what it's designed for intuitively and well and without distractions. This is such an application.

    m4/3: E-P2, EM-5, 100-300, 14-42mm 12-50mm, 45mm, panny 14mm. 4/3: 7-14 + Flashes & tripods & stuff

      Yeah, I've been using it for a while. I can't remember where I saw the link.
      It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

              looks ok.

              Edit: In fact it seems to work well N of the Arctic Circle, it omits the "Sunset" parts. Rather neat really.

                Ah... sorry, I was testing for the longest day of the year, June 22nd, and there it fails to show anything at all. No moon or sun rise/set lines.... my fault... the sun doesn't go down that high north, and on the 22nd this year, the moon rose was also up there...

                My ignorance on display once more

                Very neat program.

                  It was updated to 1.0 RC1 (release candidate 1) a couple of weeks ago.

                  I've let early adopters test it since then before updating today.
