Which Way Are We Looking?

Which direction are we looking in the picture above?


Spoiler alert… answer next…


Answer:

1 Point for W. 2 Points for WNW.

The snow has lasted longer in the shade from the hedge, telling us that the midday sun and therefore south, is to our left. We must be looking close to West.

If you look carefully / zoom in a bit, you can see the church in the distance. Churches can be used to find direction. Church towers tend to be at the western end.
