(A series of posts leading up to/including The Nocturnes Photo Tour in the West of Ireland, July 15-25, 2013; with a personal Genealogical Research Extension, in and around Ballina, up in County Mayo, July 25-29)

While not an essential tool for each and everyone of you, on our trip to Ireland (I'll have the mobile app with me); The Photographer's Ephemeris most definitely worth a shout-out! TPE is a mapping app that helps landscape photographers plan their photo shoots in advance. Sunrise and set, moonrise and set, phase of the moon, as well as direction of these bodies, as they move across the sky, are clearly indicated on topographical maps.

Note that TPE for the Desktop (both Windows and MAC) is FREE! - the mobile app is available on the App Store for iOS for $8.99 (an Android vers. is $4.99).
