Webcam on La Peñita's North Beach

The current photo from the webcam on La Peñita's north beach should show. It should refresh every 2 minutes.

Just an experiment but if you like it it may become permanent. All suggestions welcome.

I will be making the URL public in the near future. Holding off just a bit to make sure it is fully secured.

Great idea, Johan! It is a sight for sore eyes when we watch the rain through the window in Victoria...I would love to see it as part of the welcome screen for Jaltembajalapeno.

You can right click on any image and you will get the option to make it your desktop background. However that will not be updated as the image changes on the internet unless I missed something. Maybe someone else can see a way to put on line images into a slideshow. I got as far as selecting multiple images from my computer but could not find a way to select on line images for the slideshow background.

Interesting, but kind of like a postcard without moving people. The camera watching the door of my house shows all kinds of people, smiling, making faces, jumping up and down, dancing, and shooting me the finger. And even the odd friendly wave and hello.

Suggest dedicated page where uploads are made frequently - a live URL to the camera is of course great but bandwidth issues are normally a problem with volume of watchers.

Thank you for doing this , if on a dedicated page you could include live update from close by weather station to include temp, % humidity and wind .

I am monitoring with particular interest on the sea state in the bay - appears calm a lot of the time.
