Trying to take advantage of the astonishing 4 seasons we have here at Lamont-Doherty I setup an old smart phone to take pictures from my office window. My intention is then to turn these pictures to timelapse. To do so, I configured my phone to take a picture every hour during the day using these very simple tools:
In cold regions where the difference between indoor and outdoor temperatures can be quite extreme I suggest using some sort of isolation material to sperate the phone from the window. The easiest solution is probably cardboard. I haven’t been using any and my phone has starting to show signs of fatigue. The screen is all dented, I suspect it has to do with the temperature fluctuations it experiences.
Either way, enough said, here are some examples of how the scenery at Lamont-Doherty changes with time:
