Sundial: Make the Most Out of My Light

Sundial [enlarge]

One of the most efficient ways to tell time, a simple mechanism that needs no cogwheels, no pendulum, no springs and no winding: to follow the shadow of the sun cast upon a numbered scale in what is known as a sundial or a sun clock. This one I found in a town nearby called Castellterçol. There are some in Barcelona too but they tend to disappear. Here is some good information about sundials and check also The Most Ridiculous Ways to Tell Time Since The Sundial.
