    Only if the piccie was taken in winter. One of the logics of introducing daylight saving time (as they call it - "Sommerzeit" or "summer time" in Germany) that I never really fathomed is that all the old (and relatively new) sundials were and are set to the proper time - which is ordinary UTC time. And that's only valid now in the autumn/winter months, when you are likely to get less sunlight to make sundials work.....!!
