The scale of a sundial is designed so that the differences in the direction of shadows during the day indicate time. In the morning, shadows are long and point toward the west. As the day progresses, shadows shorten. At noon, when the Sun is at its highest point in the sky, shadows are shortest. In the afternoon, shadows are longer again and in the opposite direction, toward the east.
For more interesting facts about sundials check out this website.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is pure,
The decrees of the LORD are firm,
and all of them are righteous.
10 They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.
14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Now living in Missouri, married and gas prices through the roof I need to get my "alone time" in a different way. Camera in hand I head out in the flat fields of the country side and walk around for a few hours enjoying the outdoors and occasionally grabbing a few pictures.
The following shots I got during one such time... just some random things I came across.
