This image is a solargraph: a record of the sun's path since December. It was taken in Brittany, and you can just about make out the trees on the horizon. Obviously I didn't leave my camera on a windowsill for three months or so: I made a pinhole camera using a beer can. For instructions (and much better images), click here and here.

Caroline, you're full of surprises! Love this image - and the technical detail is simpler than expected.

Thank you! You're right, it's actually quite simple to do - the hardest part was finding somewhere to locate it. (My mum very tolerantly allowed two beercans to sit on the bedroom windowledge for three months, but has said never again!)
