Longs Peak webcam and others – now with time-lapse

Good news for lovers of Longs Peak (elev. 14,259 ft). There’s a 24-hour time-lapse view of the peak on the Lookr website. The video is compiled from Rocky Mountain National Park’s Longs Peak webcam. Nothing new about the camera itself, but the compilation of sequential still shots is a wonderful way to see how the light, clouds, and weather change the appearance of the peak.

And don’t miss the bonus feature. Click the little up/down arrow at the bottom of the screen and you can also watch 30-day, 12-month, or “lifetime” (about 2.5 years) videos.

This is a screenshot from the webcam:

Note August 11, 2016: As those of you with larger screens may already have noticed, scrolling down the page with the Longs Peak webcam will reveal other Colorado webcams (many that I’ve mentioned before) also with time lapse.
