Tracking the setting sun behind downtown Raleigh

April 5th, 2019

For about a week near the the spring and fall equinoxes, the sunset will align behind downtown Raleigh from certain vantage points. I capture a timelapse for 6 days as the relative position of the sun moved north each day. This skyline view is about 7 miles away.
