how to find the gradient of pixels in angular direction?

1 view (last 30 days)
i wish to find gradient of pixels which are at an angle of 30 degrees with the central pixel of the block. How can I do this? because the usual gradient operators like sobel,prewitt will allow finding gradient only in the horizontal or vertical direction and not in angular.

Let H be the horizontal gradient and V be the vertical gradient. Then
will give a directional derivative at 30 degrees.

If I want to find the norm of edge, should I replace 30 with 90 in the above formula?
Is "H*cosd(30)+V*sind(30)" a vector or point?
