Twin Peaks Sunset

This quick and dirty animated GIF is a meager representation of the work of Jonathan Foote, aka rotormind, aka @rrmutt, who was kind enough set up a Sutro Sunset HD cam that automatically grabs each sunset for our viewing pleasure. He did a brain transplant on an old Canon Powershot and runs the stills them through ffmpeg to make rather lovely time-lapses.
(I just went through and copied shots at point the sun hit Twin Peaks (on days when the fog wasn’t in the way). So sort of a a time-slice of a time-lapse. (I’m not sure if there’s a word for that. Time-pivot?))
Anyway, his rotormind has captured some rather spectacular sunsets.

And apparently, there’s this thing called “tsun-hraiz” in which a luminous orb appears in the sky before I wake up. Luckily the robots caught it:
An increasingly large set of sunsets is available over on the newly founded blip.tv Sutro sunset channel.
