Photographer's Note

Sundials is an evidence of ancient-wisdom, as windmills and aqueducts, using nature's forces for people benefits.
The old sundial in the Heidelberg castle premises, 49.4109, 8.7154 on the map (actually you can zoom in on Google-map and see a closer look). Roman numerals to show the time, and astrological signs to indicate time of the year. A Wikipedia page about the castle, first built in the 13th century, but destroyed, demolished and ruined, than re-built while was under many conflicts and squabbles throughout the past. Yet, some elements on interest were left intact. Will show more from the castle in future posts.
In the 2 WS's, a view of the inner yard of the castle, the palace facade with the Sundial located on the old tower.
Exp. Bias +1.3, due to very dark cloudy day, and also no time indication could be read.
