SUNSETS FROM THE WINTER SOLSTICE TO THE SUMMER SOLSTICE IN SICILY Taken by Marcella Giulia Pace on June 21, 2017 @ My location: Gatto Corvino - Marina di Ragusa (Rg) Sicily - Ita (https://goo.gl/maps/YYRmq86uXak) 36°4847.5”N 14°3355.9
I created this interactive picture ( http://greenflash.photo/?da_image=sunsets-solstice-winter-summer-solstice) made of many sunsets from the same position, from the Winter solstice to the Summer solstice.
By clicking on each Sun in the picture you can access many info about every single sunset: weather data, mirages (if any), a video and the whole sequence of the sunset.
For each sunset I made 3 types of shooting from the same location:
- 1 shot at 18mm using a Nikon D 7100 Reflex
- the whole sequence at 215mm with a Canon SX 50 HS
- 1 video shot using a Sony Handicam
The weather data are provided by Civil Protection Weather Station at the port of Marina di Ragusa (Rg) - Sicily (Italy) . I eventually got their meteo data of the whole year in a big file, from 24 December 2016 to 21 June 2017.
I entered 2 types of time and azimuth:
1) taking into account the depression of the horizon
2) taking into account the depression of the horizon and atmospheric refraction
The program I used (Cartes du soleil) considers the time at sunset when the Sun is below the horizon.
