About

Snapshot365 is a webcam archive with a twist.

There are plenty of sites that offer you images of what various webcams around the world are showing right now. So we don't do that!

Instead, what we've got here is an archive of selected webcams, displayed in simple calendar format, so that you can see how the image has changed over the seasons. From traffic in Dublin to the Arctic Circle, the pyramids of Egypt to Canada, see how the images change from day to day.

The idea for the site came from watching a time-lapse image generated from a sequence of webcam images. Although most webcams are intended to be watched live (or near-live), so that you can see what's happening at the moment, it can be just as interesting to see how the image has changed over time - particularly over different seasons and through different weather patterns.

For example, compare this picture of the Skye Bridge, where the sun is shining and the sea is an almost Caribbean blue, with this one just two weeks later. View the whole month and you can see how different it looks in different weather conditions.

So, Snapshot365 exists to give a different kind of window into the webcam world. We hope you enjoy it.
