It's the Easter weekend coming right up, and in some parts of the world, that means time off work - time you can spend on photography!

If I were home in the UK this weekend, these are some of the locations I'd likely head out to.

There's a freely downloadable KML file included in the post, with all the locations details, which you can import into TPE for Desktop, Android or iOS, and start exploring the upcoming light conditions!

Congratulations to +Erik Stensland on the launch of his new hard cover book "Wild Light - A Celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park".

The cover photograph is a particular favourite of mine from Erik's portfolio. I'm looking forward to picking up my own copy.

You can pre-order now on Erik's web-site:

"Landscape photography is both great fun, inspiring and hard work. It can be both physically and mentally demanding, carrying your gear to the ideal location, finding the right angle and of course the potentially agonizing waits for the light to become just so."

Last night's eclipse. It was nice (if a little bit lazy) to be able to get these only 3 steps from our back door at home!

While the weather forecast isn't looking so good for DC, the Washington Monument can provide a great companion to the full moon.

This article shows how to develop a shot plan Monday night's total lunar eclipse using TPE and Photo Transit:

Great to see TPE being used not only by stills photographers, but also by videographers. The time lapse sequences in this fascinating film about Mt. Tamalpais are beautiful, plus there's a ton of technical info about how the film was shot:

"Bamburgh Curves"

Last Sunday, we revisited Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland for the first time in six years (can't believe it's been that long).

It wasn't the most spectacular sky (certainly not a patch on what we enjoyed at our last visit), but some nice curves in the sand provided some good potential.

At this time of year, it's easy to get the castle silhouetted against the rising sun. If you wait until sunrise, the unpleasant artificial lighting on top of the castle is turned off, so you can avoid the distracting elements in your photograph.

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)
