The fault that Santa Elena cuts generally faces slightly north of east and the river emerges roughly perpentidular to the fault face
It is a very nice shot, probably taken early morning, into the mouth of the canyon by James Benton
right now through say August 8th or so should have the sunrise shining rightdown the river exit of Santa Elena canyon
So if I'm doing this Ephemeris thing correctly, right now through say August 8th or so should have the sunrise shining rightdown the river exit of Santa Elena canyon fully lighting up both canyon walls? Or am I doing it wrong?
The secondary map location function allows a number of geodetic calculations to be performed.Perhaps most important to the photographer is the Apparent Altitude. This is altitude, adjusted for refraction, between the primary and secondary locations, positive when looking up at a mountain, negative when peering down into a valley.Additionally, the secondary marker location may be used to set the elevation above sea level of the true horizon, allowing the height above the horizon of the primary location to be calculated. The visible horizon of an observer elevated above the ground lies farther away. Consequently, rise times are earlier or set times later.
One thing to remember though. You may have something blocking the sun on the horizon at the time, so getting light in the canyon may not occur until later.
FM, nope. I tried but failed.Al
