Like the pov Jasmine, great detail. Have spent 5 mins trying to figure out if its telling the correct time against the time you took it Grin

Interesting subject, good detail and excellent strong shadows: like this sort of local shot, Jasmine.

GrinGrinGrin.. ha,ha..Was it right, John? I never tried.. but I do like them. After I read your comment, I had a was round about in between 9 and 10, wasn't it? It was about right then. When they built the sundial, they didn't 'think' how to tell the summer time..GrinGrin
Thank you, RonnieSmile

Great angle, light, textures and pastel tones, Jasmine.

Wonderful sundial too.

That's a beauty, Jasmine, I can't resist photographing sundials. This looks like a very old one and I felt that perhaps it had originally been inset into a wall, then placed on these supports later, so I did some googling and found this . I first of all wondered why it should be "declining", but realised that was the type, nothing to do with its ageGrin. I liked the words on the engraving, "Like a shadow, so passes life". Didn't get my question answered, though.

Thank you so much Pamela for the link. I really didn't do the search.. glad to know the detail about the sundial. When I looked at it, I thought that it was one of the most sophisticated sundial I have ever seen..The light was good, so that I could get a shadow.. I didn't know that you like the sundials. I'll put the whole church photo on for you to have a look the location of the sundial then...BTW, this is another photo, I tried to "correct" the vertical, and found it looked totally wrong...Grin
Thank you Philp.

You just can't lose with an image of a sundial, they are so visually appealing. Nice one Jasmine.

Sorry I couldn't support your stuff during the last three weeks but our wifi access was intermittent and too weak to allow image downloads.
