Time to take a look at a picture thet is rarely mentioned when discussing Kris and Lisanne’s Pianista Hike, photo 0489. Yet much can be gleaned from it. It’s possible to pinpoint both direction and location from the photo and because of the shadows Kris casts on this photo, also about the exact time the photo was taken.
I always liked this photo, for some reason. First of all, she looks pretty happy on it and not tired in the least It also shows the beauty of the surroundings – the great view of the valley you can see behind her (not visible on this cut I made).
We can also clearly see the shadow she is casting. The sun is high in the sky, almost at its zenith, and is located somewhere behind her right shoulder. The length of the shadow is very short and indicates a time shortly before noon, somewhere between 11:30 and 11:50 am.
A closer look at her shoes reveals they are brown, wuth grey-ish laces, tied in an unruly not on both shoes. There are small metal shoelace eyelets. The rucksack carrying bands have a tartan print.
