equinox solargraph ii

Solstice to solstice: 21 Dec 2018 to 21 Jun 2019. This is an 8x10 inch pinhole paper negative inside a canister, aimed so that it is pointed at an altitude of 90° - my latitude. At the autumnal equinox the sun traced a straight line across the middle. The winter and summer solstices are at the bottom and top. In the spring, tall grass grew up in front of the can, leaving those tall shadows. Below the sun streaks are the tops of some distant eucalyptus trees. The white "stains" around the edges are where water damaged the paper emulsion. You can also see a Solargraphy Map

solstice to solstice

21 June to 21 December 2018 8x10 inch photo paper Pinhole camera is aimed so that on the equinox it made a perfectly straight line. You can see our usual late summer foggy mornings and the October storms we had this year. Edit: actually, now I think the lower dark area was caused by smoke from the horrible wildfires we had this year. You can also see a Solargraphy Map
