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.

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


The Noon Movies:

"Valley Cam" This looks across the valley toward the west.
"Snowstick Cam" The "Snowstick Cam".  During the summer this camera may change positions.
"Snowstick2 Cam" The second "Snowstick Cam."  This camera looks at a snowstick on the north side of the cabin.  During the summer, this camera may change positions.
"Cabin Cam" This shows the cabin's west-looking face.  This camera will shift position because it is attached to a tree.
"Northwest Cam" The "Northwest Cam".  This camera shifts its position because it is attached to a tree that is affected by snow - and it's growing!
The "North Cam" This remotely-controlled camera looks to the north.  Because this camera can be remotely-controlled, so it may not be looking at the same thing all of the time.
"Southwest Cam" The "Southwest Cam" archive.  During the summer this is replaced by the "Hummingbird Cam"
