We love to share our affection for Vermont and our little homestead. We also share the view. It’s better in person; however, there’s still a great deal to enjoy remotely. Check out the various images and time-lapse videos below and come back often. It changes by the minute.

The image above is the most recent image uploaded. You can watch this update automatically every 30 seconds by clicking on the image.

The images you see above are then “stitched” together each day and turned into time-lapse films. One of which is the previous day in its entirety, and the other is of only the daylight hours. The former can occasionally be dark especially in winter, but also offers chances to view the moon or the stars drift past … as well as wildlife.

As part of an on-going project, Rick, is collecting daily images for sunrise, noon, and sunset. Below are the most recent image from each.

time-lapse videos

There are two time-lapse viewing options, and both are under 3-minutes long, so you don’t really have to choose. The daylight hours version runs from sunrise to sunset. If you are more interested in the scenery, or weather, definitely choose it. The 24-hour version can have unexpected beauty in the movement of the stars and the moon, as well as unexpected wildlife brave enough to approach the house at night.
