The Golden Hour

Don't know if anyone has come across this or not but surfing around the web as I do being the total insomniac that I am, I came across this little nugget of a website this morning which could be dead handy if you're into your landscape photography. It will tell you sunrise and sunset time for whatever part of the world you happen to be in at the time, it also has a handy app for the i-phone too. Worth a look if landscaping is your bag.

Apologies if someone else has mentioned it before, I had a cursory search and couldn't find anything relating to it....

That app costs 3.99 and there are several equally good free ones that do the same. I use one simply called Sunrise Sunset and another one for moon phases and rise/set times.

Phone apps like this are especially useful as they use your GPS location to give the exact times for wherever you are - which even in the UK can vary by about an hour and a half between south-east and north-west at the solstices.

My fav is the photographers empharesis - not only does it allow you to calculate sunrise and sunset times, but it also allows you to estimate the effect of the elevation of the surrounding terrain on the 'effective' time. E.g. the time the sunsets on the horizon will be different to the the time the sun is visible when a mountain is in the way!

Oh well, it still might be useful for online use if nothing else, I just came across it in the night and though it worth a mention. As for the app, well to be honest I didn't notice there was a charge as I've a smartphone as opposed to an i-phone, so it didn't really interest me. The way I normally work out sunsets when on the few occasions I go out to do them is by using my handheld Garmin GPS receiver.....But I'm just another gadget nut Tongue

Juke Box Jury was one of mine.

Possibly because my mum took me to a recording of the show at Chatham Town Hall.

I cannot recall who was actually on the panel but one name that springs to mind is Pete Murray.

Re Juke Box Jury

Just had to do a bit of research to jog my memory, the regular presenter was David Jacobs with Pete Murray as a stand in from time to time.

I'm with you on that Vince - when I eventually get a smart phone, I will still use it for just speaking to and texting people Smile

There again, I might get a spirit level app.........
