Sunset: Amplitude Occasive

Sunset from the Winter Solstice to Summer Solstice in Sicily

I created this interactive picture ( 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).

Until the 26th of May the sunset happened at the sea horizon.
From the 27th of May the sunset happened above the coastline (Licata – Agrigento – Sicily).

My location: Gatto Corvino – Marina di Ragusa (Rg) Sicily – Ita ( 36°48’47.5″N 14°33’55.9″E
Height: 178 above s.l.
