Kitchenhenge - Installment 2

Here is the summer solstice (missed by a couple of days) picture from my top outside kitchen step. You may recall that I'm trying to document the movement of the sun through the year from a familiar vantage point.

Remember that the red line is only to help you identify the same tree from picture to picture to make it easier to see how much the sunrise spot has moved.

I totally do this with sunrise at our house except use the hills to the east for my markers. It still amazes me!

I use a tree too! DH laughs and wonders what I will do if they ever cut the tree down.
Lovely pics.

Julia and Glynis! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who likes to watch this. Thanks for your comments.

These are a very interesting combination. It's interesting to see not only the position of the sun, but also the differences of the treeline.

Ratty- I had to look twice myself to get the trees IDed! It's really easier when the leaves are off.
