This solargraph was taken between December 21, 2013 and June 21, 2014 -- winter solstice to summer solstice. It was captured from my home in southern England utilizing a really big 4 in (10 cm) pinhole camera made with plastic drainpipe and 8 in x 10 in (20 cm x 25 cm) photographic paper. The camera faced south. Note how the Sun progressively climbs higher in the sky. It's pretty obvious that the winter season was sunnier than spring. At bottom are the New Forest observatories.
