    Finally, I used one other position-finding method. I emailed the photographer and said, "excuse me, sir, if you would kindly tell me the location where you took this photo, I will give you this very fine and valuable barometer."


    Ironically, this last method would have increased the error to about a mile.
    The photographer thought that he had taken the photo from a hill in Kearney, NJ, one town over, according to the caption on several websites that posted the photo.
