the farm cam project
This 24-hour camera is in Tunbridge, Vermont and is centered on Killington mountain on the horizon. A new image is uploaded every 30 seconds. The image above it the most recent.
I appreciate the randomness of a single shot. What will it capture? Who will even see it? The image is available only briefly and then it is gone. I hope there was something there that was interesting for your encounter. If not, scroll down and maybe something else will.

How it's all done
This HD outdoor camera is mounted to the house and faces southwest. I use an older Apple Airport Express and a POE adapter to connect it to my wireless network.
The iMac in my office at the house runs the software and is connected via wireless network to the Hikvision camera.
Automator used to do a very complex sequence of tasks on my behalf, but it is only employed for archiving the videos created each day for local storage and retrieval.
