Solar recorder, Chatsworth House, 1993
This unusual photograph is of a sunshine hours recorder in the grounds of Chatsworth house.  The photo has been inverted so the reflection is the right way up.  It consists of a glass sphere surrounded by a strip of card marked with hours of the day.  Any sunlight is focused through the sphere on to the paper creating burn marks when the sun is out.
