Atlatl Rock Pictures

(Click on the images to view them in full resolution!)

Pictures taken by myself on Sept. 12, 2008

My camera at that time was a Cannon IXUS 50.
Fortunately, I always have set the time of my cameras to UT (± ~5 minutes) so that determining the sun position during the exposures was possible. Therfore date and time of pictures 1 - 7 are correct UT dates.
During September 2008 daylight saving time was effective (Pacific daylight saving time (PDT) = UT - 7h).

There are much more photograps of Atlatl Rock available in the internet, but due to copyright issues I do not dare to provide links to them here. Sorry!
