Here’s another of those amazing 6-month-long exposures by my esteemed friend Prof Greg Parker. He sets up very slow film in a make-shift pin-hole camera – and leaves it in a fixed position for 6 months at a time. The sun traverses the sky every day leaving a trail, and the trails build up into a very informative and beautiful pattern.

Here’s what he says:

“Another Solstice-to-Solstice exposure using a pinhole camera to track the Sun’s path across my southern horizon.

Difference with this one is I’ve used a FLAT film in a tea-caddy tin rather than the folded film in a beer can – leads to less distortion of the image.”

Thanks Prof !
