You might wonder, what did I do different in this, image looks smooth, nothing really interesting beside "how did I actually know about the location, time, date?"

This How is about how did I determine the date/time/location to get this shot :)

To explain the process, I have kept two images below:

if you see below google maps image, I was standing at Point "A" and I just assumed some point "B" on the same road far from point "A", you can see other end of the road on the same line.

Next I wanted to know the date/time and for that I used an app called "Photopills" and screen capture of that is second image and details on how to use and what not can be found at their website accessible here.

In second image you will see the date/time when I am going to have sun alignment to the points I choose. I can do all those planing atleast 5 years in advance using the app. In the second image you can see that I have already mapped next time when the alignment is happening at when and what time. This way I can plan my day to day work and keep buffer of the time when I can reach there and take shot.

All my milky-way shots are planned like that only to know how the alignment would be what angle, what time etc.

If anyone like to know on how to and what not of that application, please feel free to ping and I will be happy to share the knowledge :)

This how to is different then what I usually post and hope you like this one too :)

Google Map link where I was standing to take this shot.

Very interesting and valuable. I'm sure some of us will be able to make great use of this app. Just to know such information is available might spark some exciting plans. Thanks very much for your considerate generosity.

I planned all these shots with that and you can see the output:

I don't think I'm smart enough to think of a way to use that... much less actually use it!

Astounding!!! The work that you put into your photography puts me to shame..

In my humble opinion, I think your photo should’ve ribboned!
