November 2008 How to interpret solargraphs from the other side of the world

There is something similar views with mountains and the sea in these two solargraphs although the first solargraph comes from New Zealand and the second one from Skibotn, Norway, on the other side of the world. I have used to interpret the Sun´s path in the solargraphs in the northern hemisphere as follows: The Sun´s altitude is reached in midsummer on June 21, 2008 and its long path does not go under the horizon at all by night. The missing traces between the white lines are due to the Sun being obscured on overcast days.

How to interpret the Sun´s paths in the southern hemisphere? The exposure was almost similar in these images. In the opposite part of the world there was winter in New Zealand and summer in the North Norway. So the Sun was at the lowest in New Zealand when the Sun´s peak was in midsummer in the northern hemisphere.
