A big thanks to Dunc for making extensive use of TPE in describing the locations in the book!
“Torridon and Applecross: A Photographer’s Guide” is a distillation of as much knowledge and experience as I could squeeze into 84 pages, gained during my months living and photographing in this quite wonderful part of the Scottish highlands.

Mars, Saturn, Moon Conjunction Over Bodie's 1937 Chevy August 30
I wrote a blog post last week about the opportunity to capture the moon, Mars and Saturn on the evenings of August 30 and 31.  This is the shot I planned with The Photographer's Ephemeris to place them over the rusty 1937 Chevy in California's Bodie State Historic Park.

Moments earlier I had been catching sunset on Main Street...

+Piotr Skuczeń Yes, but it's going to take a while. This update for iOS was several hundred hours work, and there's just the two of us to do it...

The TPE web app has been updated to version 1.1, adding location synchronization, updated time zone data (particularly important for users in Russia), and some fixes for Daylight Saving time (timely for users in the USA!)

You can now sign up for a free account to synchronize and backup your saved locations. Read more below:

Great Harvest Moon shot by +Stan Showalter :
 
Denver, Colorado – Super/Harvest Moon

View large for most impact.
Technically, this isn't a super moon or the harvest moon, as it was taken the day after.  But … it is darn close.  Plotted our location and timing using +The Photographer's Ephemeris , we took a chance.  It had been cloudy and rainy all day leading up to this, but we went out anyhow and took a chance that there would be a break in the clouds.  

Even if the moon did not work out, it was going to be an opportunity to scout for an evening cityscape along the shore of Sloan Lake.  I was quite thrilled with sky and clouds as the moon began to rise behind the downtown Denver city scene.  I wish my exposure had captured some detail in the moon itself - I will know better next time.

Note on +The Photographer's Ephemeris  :  If you used the desktop version of this in the past that made use of Adobe Air (both Mac & Windows), you'll find your installed software no longer works.  As of about a week ago, they have moved the free desktop version to be supported by their web based app.  Still free, still a wonderful tool for plotting sun/moon locations for photography shoots.  Because the web address carries all the settings info for a specific view, I can give you all the exact plotting of when/where this shot was taken.  The only thing I am not sure of is that it says the moon's elevation at this time was 1.7 degrees above the horizon, and the image shows this to be different (so I think).  If you are a photographer, check out the link.  I think you will find it interesting.

Three images from a bracketed set were merged into an HDR using +Nik Collection by Google  HDR Pro 2.  The resulting image was blended back into the middle frame of the bracket set and opacity reduced to 43%.  Luminosity of the original image was blended back again at 100%.  Noise in sky and water was reduced using +Topaz Labs  DeNoise 5.

It's all about the light
Introduction

The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE) helps you plan outdoor photography shoots.

TPE is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, be it day or night, for almost anywhere on earth.

Ideal for landscape, nature, travel and outdoor photographers, TPE's map-based approach means you can search for any place name on the planet or position the map pin exactly where you want it.

Advanced features include: automatic time zone and elevation detection, correction for atmospheric refraction and height above the horizon. You can even determine when the sun or moon will be visible from behind nearby hills and mountains.

TPE for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)

TPE for Android (2.2+)

TPE for Desktop (Windows, Mac OS X)
