Preparation

I’ve had in mind a sunset shot looking up river from the swinging bridge at Jay Cooke State Park, however you have to wait until the right time of year to get the right alignment.  Thanks to the PhotoPills app, I was able to travel forward in time to find out exactly when I should be in the park to get the shot.  Using the augmented reality feature, I could see just where the sun will be based on where I stand on the bridge.  Technology is a wonderful thing…when it works!  I will be visiting the park later today to give it a shot, but feel safe knowing that I have a window of several days to get the image I am hoping for.  In the meantime, here is a teaser of the view I will be working with.
