Dear BlenCam viewers, we have now successfully captured “A year in the life of Blencathera” from the 1st Jan 2018 to the 1st Jan 2019 we have been capturing and storing one image every minute 24/7/365. This has given us some 5 to 6 hours of time lapse footage covering the year. During this time, we have not moved or adjusted the camera apart from a small settings adjustment to capture more of the stars during clear nights.
I have not had much time to look through the footage but what I have seen is amazing. We had some fantastic weather both good and bad during the year which has led to a lot of stunning footage which I hope to start editing soon.
Unfortunately, the popularity of the camera has caused merry hell with my home internet connection as up to 4TB of data was being uploaded every month, my kids have not been very happy as it brought any online gaming to its knees. For this reason, I have had to temporarily take down access to BlenCam, this should only be for a few days whilst we reconfigure the system of displaying BlenCam.
