|Cropped and a slight color adjustment.|
Later that evening I had made plans to try to capture an image of the Sun setting behind the lighthouse in the image below.
Below is the printout which came from one of my favorite programs.
The map shows the bright orange line starting as the drop pin and disappearing in the left hand corner. I need to be someplace along that line at sunset. The bottom gives all the important times you might need.
The results of preplanning can give idea of a position which would work to capture the image you see in your mind's eye. However the weather didn't co-operate. As you can see in the following picture a dense cloud bank started coming in as the sun neared the horizon.

I also should have moved to the left about 200 feet and would have done so but the sun disappeared into the fog.
