One of the most important things for photographers is to know, when and where the sun is rising or setting. For this reason we have added the exact directions for every spot to make it even easier for you to decide if the spot is good for your planned shooting or not.
In combination with the direction the photo was taken, which is already available in many spots and marked by the purple image marker, you get a very easy way to decide if it's worth it to be right on spot during sunrise or sunset, especially if you have a very specific idea in mind.
The bright yellow line shows the direction of the sunrise, the medium orange color shows the current position of the sun and the dark orange line leads into the direction where the sun is setting.
For this spot at Cap Formentor on Mallorca it's pretty helpful to see the direction the photographer was shooting, which is the dotted line towards the purple marker, in this zoom level overlaid by the parking place marker. Right before shooting at this spot we already know, that the sun is rising on the right side of the lighthouse, making this a perfect spot for a sunrise photography session. To make certain that you are right on time at the spot, there is also a timer in every spot, telling you when exactly the sun is at the horizon. Make sure though, that you are at least 30-60 mins before this time at the place so that you have enough time to find the best perspective for your image.
Cap Formentor is a great example for a spot that's perfect for sunrise photos. I even got pretty "lucky" with the clouds and colors, dividing the scene into 2 opposite colors with the warm colors on the right and the cooler blue colors on the left side of the lighthouse.
