More Sunlight For Us. Daylight Savings Time.

Sat Apr 03, 2004 3:13 am

Finally back to Daylight savings time, that means more time to shot for us hear in the United States. Specifically here in NY(JFK).

That's good for the evening, but that means less light early in the morning.

Hey Eric

Same for us in the UK.........clocks went forward last Sunday.

Since then, for Aberdeen, rain rain and more rain?
The time has come to start sticking the camera in the boot.......sorry.....trunk of the car so I can pop in past my local if the light is good.

Cheers

More time in the summer ... not necessarily. The sun is getting awfully high around noon & heat haze already starts at 0900.  Crying

Hey Gary,

Arizona that doesn't not have time change with daylight saving time. I would like make longer day time for me on Sunday. It would be perfect for me.

As previously mentioned, having more daylight to work with isn't necessarily a good thing. I actually shoot less in the summer because of the terrible sun angle (too high). Starting about this time of year, I only shoot at sunrise or sunset.

But, yeah, it is nice to have sunset at a later hour so I can head out to the airport after work now!

The nice thing about the summer is the nice sunset shots you can take without freezing, or having to go in and out of a car for every plane.

I like this feature much better (along with many other features) in the east part of the USA. In the summer in Michigan you can still see light on the horizon at 1100pm at the peak of the summer solstice.
