After looking at this sundial for a minute or so, I figured out what time it was.
Time to get a watch! Thanks to daylight savings time the dial is 1 hour fast.

A beautiful picture. Good work! The sundial is lovely and you captured the detail with clarity in just the right light.

I never thought about a sundial being off because of day light savings time... interesting.

As with Selvin, you beat us to the punch with the sundial. We are still looking for one:G

Gee anyone can make a sundial. Just stick a stick in the ground, check your watch and look at the shadow and you will know what time it is.

How true, but round here, expecting any mental arithmetic to be achievable in anyone under 40 yrs old, requiring knowledge of one twenty-fourth of 360 degrees (15, I think, possibly) per hour, 6 hours per right angle of 90 degrees (how many, that many?!) could be somewhat challenging. The 'check your watch' bit might sometimes work on a good day with a following wind.

Alan, I think you've gone off the deep end. :lol::lol: With DST, it appears that the time is 4:30 PM ± 5 minutes.
