It is obvious to me where the sun is coming from in the car photo due to the shadows. It is much less obvious in my sky photo. How can you tell that it is right rear?

none of the clouds are rear lit (happens if sun is front of you)

none of the clouds were left-lit

so it means the sun is to your right (right lit) plus behind you (front-right lit clouds) requires sun positioned right/behind your right't matter if your time zone is right or wrong if not changed between shots)

Thanks for the added info. I will have to start paying more attention to that. I wouldn't have noticed it without your help.

BTW not only were the images were taken in different seasons but also in different states.
