A long day with short shadows - a fine Midsummer's Day

Happy Solstice everyone. I was a bit more diligent with my bi-annual celebration of the sun's tilting.
I placed a 45 inch pole and measured the shadow at high noon. The shortest it became was about 15 inches. If I could remember any trigonometry I could probably figure out where I am.

My setup, a fiberglass pole which measures 45 inches from ground to tip

Shortest shadow came in at 15 inches
