It is not clear to me that the time/sun angle has been nailed
down. Much of the discussion was based on the camera time of
14:52 pm which gives an altitude of about 55 degrees (Azimuth
287 degrees), as used in some of the posts. However, the shadows
in the photos are quite short, suggesting that the Sun is more
overhead. Standard time was assumed for that calculation.

The photographer said that the time was about 2 pm. Since the
location was Eastern Australia in the summer, he surely meant 2
pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time. Yes? No?

At 2 pm AEDT, the Sun was at 73 degrees altitude and 335 degrees
azimuth. At 14:52 AEDT the Sun was at 66 degrees altitude and
306 degrees azimuth.

The Sun crossed the meridian (High Noon) at the site of the
photo about 1:29 pm AEDT.

I think that these higher altitudes are more in keeping with the
short shadows, but they probably don't affect anyone's
