Which Way Are We Looking? Ivy Edition

Which direction are we looking in the image above?


Answer:

We are looking… West. The five best clues are:

The ivy stem has grown away from the light.

There are more roots on the shady North side.

There is a patch of moss on the shaded northern side of the stem.

The tree is lighter on the left, because the southern sky is brighter.

The bark itself is darker on northern side.
