Taking a clock face to empahasise what I mean, The sun set at 12 last year, yet tonight it set at the 3.00 o,clock point.
If you are serious about finding out what is happening here then the answer is simple. Take a time stamped image from a specific location showing the setting Sun, similar to what you have now but more detailed. You need a line of sight reference from the same location that does not change over time. Take an image at a particular time, Solstices and Equinoxes preferred. Do the same thing the following year and compare.
someone tell me what I did wrong there please?

I have read somewhere that other people have said the same thing, the innuits I think. But i think some ... ahem .. 'experts' somewhere 'explained' that the sun only 'appeared' to be setting in a different place, due to gasses in the atmosphere and refraction of some sort? I can't remember how they explained it.
Climate Change: During our letters segment last week we also took a look at climate change from the top of the high Arctic. The cold has been a constant in Inuit life, pretty much forever. But warming weather, their lives are changing in ways the rest of us can barely imagine. Zacharias Kunuk is an Inuit film director who won the Palme D'Or at Cannes for Atanarjuat - The Fast Runner. Now, he has teamed up with environmental scientist, Ian Mauro to make a documentary about what a warming world looks like to his Inuit elders. We spoke with them a couple weeks ago in advance of the film's premiere. A few listeners wrote in with questions regarding something Ian Mauro said during the interview regarding the sun setting in a different place. Well the conversation then continued in our inbox and we shared a few of those letters ... one suggesting that we have Quirks & Quarks host, Bob MacDonald in to settle the confusion. So Bob McDonald, the host of CBC Radio's Quirks & Quarks came in to studio to help sort this out.

Hi Everyone, Love this site and finally had to comment on this thread. Every year we camp in the exact same spot at Easter and i watch the sun rise across the ocean between two large trees as markers, this year i was shocked because it was much more to the left almost obscured by one tree. That would make it more to the NE. It was discussed around the camp and eventually forgotten. Please someone can you tell me whats going on. Cheers!

Good morning from Scotland and thanks for the responses. Some points...Important first. I can assure you both photographs were taken on the dates I stipulated. I dont care whether the trees say one was in autumn and one in summer. In Autumn winter here it gets dark at 4/4.30pm. Anyway, tonight at sunset I will go to the same spot and take the same photograph as the panorama.
Can I just add, There are way more people than me noticing diffirences worldwide going by the comments here and elsewhere.

EDIT - defcon5 even posted an explanation lols.edit on 3-6-2011 by BIGPoJo because: more info

This thread is not worth the time it took me to post it. Ive had doubts thrown on my professional capabilities, my method of work, my ability to stand in the same position to take a photograph, my memory and my ability to embed exif data in a picture that I said had no point of reference. To the poster asking if this was in Troon, no it was at the 4 furlong marker at Ayr Racecourse.
Were you ever sorry you asked a question? For those that offered opinions and ideas, thanks it was appreciated. For those who supported with their own examples, thanks appreciated.
