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.
