At The Same Time

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Intricate.”

Intricate does not always mean small.

We came across this splendid device in the formal gardens of Culzean Castle, near Ayr in West Scotland. We had visited the castle before, but must not have visited the walled garden. Standing on its plinth, this multi-faced sundial towered above me and told us over and over that it was about 12:30.

I remember wondering at the amount of thought, effort (and time!) which would have gone into designing this intricate timepiece.

Many faces, but giving the same answer. We could learn something from this.
