    Hi

    I need some help to work out the position of the sun at a given time.

    I take photographs of Railways and wanted to know if there is a simple way
    of calculating where the sun will be at a given time in relation the the
    direction of a rail line.

    Regards

    Many, many years ago as a Boy Scout I was taught that if you pointed the
    hour hand of a watch at the sun, south was half way between the hour hand
    and 12 on the watch dial. This is not precise, but would seem to be close
    enough to use in reverse to answer your question. Gary Q

    Why, because I stated the obvious?

    I agree. I hate it when ppl are honestly looking for advise/answers, and
    someone like THAT has to show their ass and be a smart ass MF!
