Webcams are like a box of chocolates

There are great photos by great photographers, like the one in the previous post, and then there are lucky screen grabs from distant webcams. I caught this one this afternoon when I checked my favorite Estes Park, Colo., webcams to see if it was snowing up there. Normally this is an unremarkable view of the YMCA conference center in the valley below, but today was quite different. The lighting here is from (a) snow, (b) clouds/fog, (c) the camera’s inability to adapt to lower-light situations, or (d) all of the above. In any case, I love the moody result.

    1. Oh dear, another bird cam. I get so hooked on these — and I love falcons! I’m going to try to resist because the last few springs I’ve gotten caught up in trying to follow about half a dozen different bird cams — owls, hawks, eagles, hummingbirds, falcons. That’s just more eggs than one grandma can keep up with!

    1. Click on the “unremarkable view” link anytime during the day and you can see the current view (or some lights at night). I haven’t been up to the center for quite a few years. I get too envious looking at all the spectacular homes that have sprung up along that road.

... and that's my two cents
