Description

This is the view toward famous Sundail of Sexten. There are following peaks pictured (in clockwise motion): Zehner (10 a.m.-Rotwandspitze/Croda Rossa 2.965m), Elfer (11 a.m.-Elferkofel/Cima Undia 3.092m) and Zwölfer (12 p.m.-Zwölferkofel/Cima Dodici 3.094m). There are also Neuner (9 a.m.) and Einser (1 p.m.) not visible in this picture. This is how Sundail works: At noon true local time, the sun is exactly in the south and has reached its highest point; the observer exactly to the north sees the sun over the peak. The same thing can be done for the other hour mountains. On a side note, the evening that I took this photo was so cold (it was around -20ºC, with wind) that my camera and lens were completely frozen on the outside. But well worth it to me.
