As I was recently given advice to be more mindful of the sun's position relative to the aircraft I was photographing, I thought this tool might come in useful for other people as it has for me:

I've been using it a bit when I need it, it is a great tool indeed. Really helps me visualize where the sun will rise and set, and I pick my location accordingly. Great site! If only they could predict when the sun would get blocked by low clouds or when you would simply have a great sunrise with no traffic, I would buy stock in the company! Ehh, but that would take the fun out of it I guess...

A very nice site as you can drag the sunposition to any part of the airfield. You can easely see what is the best time on what place, if any sun is predicted, of course.

If it ain't a low morning cloud blocking a stunning sunrise it's a sudden lack of aircraft for those precious minutes, dare I say seconds really, when the sun first rises or sets. It's luck of the draw!
