Longs Peak Webcam Time Lapse

Postby nicholasblee » Tue Jan 15, 2013 8:07 pm



After seeing that the webcam was moved (to a much better location), I wrote a little server script to grab the image every 10 minutes then threw them all into a video to see what it would look like (I left out the night shots as you can't see anything). This is from Jan. 5th to Jan. 15th. YouTube link for fullsize

Very cool! Funny how isolated some of the clouds were. Clear view from camera, but entire cirque was socked in.
