    Sunset photos needed

    CiC forum members,


    After asking Donald, the site moderator, who in turn asked Sean, the site owner, and receiving their permission to proceed, I am asking you to help me out in a modest research effort that requires images. The research effort is an attempt to determine which weather conditions are favorable for colorful and interesting sunset or sunrise images. To conduct the research, I need sunset or sunrise images (both great ones and perhaps not so great ones). I also need the location of the image, the time and date it was taken, and the direction. In return, I will credit your image if I use it in a publication. If I do not use it in the publication but do use it in the research, I will credit you in the acknowledgements. Photos (images) near cities or airports are best because I can find the weather conditions when the image was taken. Images from remote places are not so helpful because there may not be any weather data from such places.


    As for the research, my plan is to write a book on weather. I have some background in meteorology; my co-author is a professional. We may also publish articles in photography magazines or elsewhere, again, giving credit along the way.


    If you would like to participate in this "crowd-sourced" endeavor, please send me a private message and we will figure out how to exchange your file(s).


    Thank you,


    Bruce

    Best of luck, Bruce. I have one you might be interested in, taken at the airport while I was awaiting my son. Should we send them via this thread or a PM?

    Kevin, Giacomo, Donald, Robin, Vanessa, Sergio, and Batmura,

    thanks so much for the photos! They are wonderful (even the "not so great" ones!) and will help in our research. Batmura, could you please provide the time and date for your photos. I can't use them without it.

    Thanks again & feel free to submit more.

    Bruce

    Another for the not so good category - Abu Dubai, looking west, 18.23 5 November 2012 - sunsets unspectacular there we thought because of too much desert dust, but maybe it is the weather ?? Had simiar results a ew days later in the wilds of Oman too.

    Batmura,

    I noticed that you edited your post (thank you). These are wonderful photos. I'm so pleased that CiC members have provided such great "data," and that my collaborator and I have them for our research.

    Thank you, again. (sağ olun)
