Winter on Georgian Bay
Highlights of a four-month time-lapse taken from a cottage overlooking Lake Huron, during an absolutely epic winter. We planted a double-Raspberry Pi camera on Dcember 27th and recovered it in early May, and were somewhat surprised to find that the board hadn't frozen or been eaten by raccoons. And indeed, the more-reliable Pi had taken over 42,000 photos. Including the lake freezing and thawing, icicles forming right in front of the camera (and then miraculously breaking off just three days later, before they get boring), killer storms, and ghostly single-frame shots of deer passing by. Hope you like it!

As it turns out, raccoons can distinguish raspberry pi from raspberry pie.

I love this. We live right on an inlet in Alaska and have done some neat shorter time-lapse stuff, but nothing as ambitious as this. So cool!
