Sundial



Liverpool trip
In Port Sunlight's memorial gardens there is this sundial. It celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II in 2012. I've never seen one like this before; it is analemmatic, using the shadow cast by a person to indicate the time of day. You have to stand on the relevant month as marked on the paving stones and read the time from one of the two rings of markers, the outer being GMT and the inner British Summer Time. So it was almost two in the afternoon when I was taking the photo.
