HD images from Peter's camera are available when requested manually. Here are the ones saved so far: HD Images.
The cottagecams are located around the Burleigh Channel. Photos are taken every few minutes all summer. John's camera has been on some winters and Peter's camera is on this year as well. There are many gaps, but the sliders will only stick to dates where there are pictures. There are currently 687,218 photos in the archive.
This is a work in progress. Please report bugs or suggestions to Peter.
