The Passing of the Seasons


This is a feature that captures an image from the cameras at the same point of each day and, over time, a time-lapse movie is created.
  Over time, a movie will be produced that shows the changing of the seasons. 

These movies were started on different dates and as time passes, these movies will gradually grow longer and show more detail as to how things change over time.  Some of these time-lapse movies are continuous since approximately 2009.

Note that over time, some of the cameras may change position due to differing points of interest or a camera being moved or replaced.
