A year in the White Mountains

It’s autumn in New England, which brings everyone’s attention to the changing of the seasons. There seem to be two types of folks here. First there are those who love the cooler fall weather and are happy to escape the summer heat. And then there are those who love the warmer summer weather and see the beginning of fall as the first indication the the weather is going to slip into the cold of winter soon. Either way, things are changing around here.

bartlettir_2014_smallSince we have so many PhenoCam images, I decided to see if I could put them all together in an animation so we could see the seasons in action. I took a year’s worth of images from our Bartlett Forest camera, pulled out one image close to noon each day, and then turned them into an animated gif using ImageMagick. Here’s the result: a year in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. 2014 to be precise.
