What's the time?

By TrevBatWCC    
Leaving Salzburg, the coach took us over the border into Germany, where we visited Berchtesgaden, a town in the Bavarian Alps. Some of us got off the coach to explore the town, whilst the rest went to visit the museum at Hitler's "Eagle'’s Nest" retreat at Kehlsteinhaus south of the town. On my travels around the town I passed a house on Ludgwig-Ganghofer Straße with this beautiful sundial painted on its front. There is actually a metal rod with extension projecting out from that sun in the artwork, so in theory, it should tell the time. However, as the sun was shining from behind the building it didn'’t really work! Just to clarify, the time was 15:14. The version is the wider view.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5, and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

I remember the gold plated lift up to the Eagle's Nest, but the town looks prettier😀

A mornings-only clock. You sleep for the afternoon so there's no need then.

A lovely decoration to the front of a house, Trev, though the majority of properties in that area do not require decorating, they are always so attractive in their own right.

A beautiful mural that is also a sundial, quite unique I should think.
