Key SkillS / Chart the sun
1 Choose a date range
The sun might appear at a better angle at a different time of year. To check, open PhotoPills and choose Planner. Hit Find and set a date range. Pick an azimuth, which is the number of degrees away from due north. The clear part shows all the angles that are available.
2 Set the elevation
Now set an elevation. Again, the shaded area shows the elevations that aren’t available. For sunrise the angle will be be very low, so this’ll be 0 degrees. Hit Search to see all the days on which this angle of view is possible – in this case, for a few days in late August and mid April.
