This diagram illustrates a design problem I’ve wondered about for many years.

True, but that’s why some fancy umbrellas have a joint in the pole so you can tilt them in the direction of the sun.

A perfect solution. In order to have the shadow as far away as the diagram indicates, the sun would have to be at a winter angle. If you are sitting at the table when it’s 22 degrees fahrenheit, you’ll want to have direct sunlight. I have a straight-up umbrella and I’ve never had the shadow at that distance in the summer; must be up about 35 feet.
