Which Direction Are We Walking?

Which Direction Are We Walking in the video above?

North, East, South or West?

There are clues in the the trees, the light, the mud, the puddles and more.

Answer below.

Spoiler alert…

We are seeing orange light reflected back to us, a sign the sun is low. It must be dawn or dusk, so we are walking close to East or West.

The trees are heavier on the right and together with the ‘tick effect‘, this shows us that south is to our right, hence we are walking east.

There are also clues in the darker mud on the right, southern side of the track and more puddles on that side too.

We are walking…
