Equinox




This is a solargraph. It's essentially a very long exposure pinhole photograph showing the sun's path through the sky from winter solstice (lowest) to spring equinox (highest). It's my first attempt and although it didn't quite go to plan (it was supposed to be landscape!) I'm just glad it worked - three months is a long time to wait for a result!

  1. Looks far more amazing than your understated description led me to imagine. Equinoxically beautiful!

  2. That's fantastic. What a beautiful picture.

    I found your blog on a Google search for a picture of a wild edible (can't remember which one now, maybe navelwort?)
    I've enjoyed reading through some of your foraging posts, really interesting, thanks. I'm in N Oxfordshire, so we have similar plants out at similar times (unlike some of the other blogs I like reading!)

  3. Thanks for the nice comments!
    Good to hear from fellow foragers, especially local-ish ones. What are you gathering at the moment? I need some inspiration! Nettle soup is getting a bit boring :)

  4. Yes, this is very beautiful. Please continue! I would like to see the next one.

    On a smaller scale and more technological:
