Twice each year, the sun sets behind the city of Atlanta as it makes it's way along the horizon. The next period will be during the week of February 16, with the best days being 18-20. This meetup will be scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 18 but feel free to go at any time during the week. If we have heavy cloud cover, then just plan to go the next day. No clouds are nice and so are some clouds but not a lot of clouds. It all depends on the shot you want to get.
Sunset is scheduled for 6:23pm. Give yourself 30-45 minutes to hike up and another 10 min to catch your breath. It'll be cold so bring a flashlight, bottle of water, gloves, hat, light jacket to put on after you start to cool down. Tripod, cable release, long lens (at least 200mm).
I'll plan to hike up at 5pm in order give my out of conditioned body some time to get up to the top. Don't plan on trying to take the Skyride up as they currently list it as being under maintenance that week. That could change. Meet me outside the restroom at the base of the trail on Mountain St. and park in the lot nearest the West gate.
