landscape – Where can I find lots of high-quality photos taken in the same exact location – but at many different times?

A lot of you might be familiar with macOS’s ‘Dynamic Wallpapers’.
The basic idea is: a wallpaper that shows a picture of a location at different times of day. Apple, for example, took 16 different shots of the Mojave desert to create a beautiful, dynamic wallpaper that matches your local time. I’m using this Windows adaption which works fantastically. However, I would like to create my own version of this concept that not only matches time of day, but local weather conditions as well.

To get to my question: Where can I find lots of high quality images of a location (landscape, city, anything) taken from the same exact spot, with the same camera, angle and lens (and so on) but at many different times and weather conditions? Ideally, with many such combinations – rainy midnight, overcast 3 AM, clear noon, …

My first thought was to look for live webcams and sample these images over a longer period of time – but there aren’t that many 4K+ webcams to begin with – and those that are available would still show pretty bad compression artifacts from the livestream. Apple uses very high resolution images to accomodate their Pro lineup of displays, which makes their implementation look great.

Perhaps there are stationary cameras that take periodic images instead of streaming a live video feed? Unfortunately, googling did nothing for me in that regard.

The obvious solution would be to take these pictures myself, but I would need a lot of time, great scenery and an expensive camera + lens for the desired results, none of which are available to me.

I know this is a long shot, but if anyone knows an image source that would match my description, I would be able to move forward with my idea. Thanks a lot!

PS: If you know a better place to ask this question (different forum, subreddit, etc.) that would, of course, also help a lot.

software – Deleting photos in Lightroom

I have taken a few months worth of photos, imported them into Lightroom so that all the photos of a given day are in a folder, and edited a small fraction of the photos. My drive is filling up, so I would like to delete (I have backed them up) all the photos I didn’t edit. Is there a way to do this in bulk? I could open each folder in Lightroom and delete the ones in the Library that are not edited, but it would be easier if the software will find the unedited ones and save me from opening each folder.

macos – Having painstakingly deleted hundreds of unwanted photos, dare I re-sync another Mac to iCloud that still has many of the deleted ones?

I have already deleted hundreds of photos in iCloud, and this works fine on my iPhone and Macbook.

However, I also have an IMac which WAS synced to the other machines up till 2017. This means in Photo it has all the photos I ever took up to 2017 including the hundreds that I have carefully deleted from iCloud.

I want to set it so it syncs to iCloud again. But if I do, will the deleted photos get added back into my Photos from this IMac? So wasting the many hours of filleting.

Is there any risk of this? Is there anything I can do?
Should I actually delete all the photos from the IMac before syncing? Would this run the risk of deleting them all from iCloud once I sync (I would not want to risk that!).

I have checked other questions but this seems to be new. My question is the opposite of many others I see, when people cannot get deleted photos to sync to another device.

Its an old iMac using OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
Thanks for advice.

photos.app – Time Machine (Photos and iCloud Drive Optimize Storage) in MacBook Pro

thank you for reading me.

I have a MacBook Pro with 256GB of Disk Storage and I have to set Optimize Storage for Photos / Videos and for iCloud Drive, since my Photo Library is much larger than 256GB.

I also monthly pay for 2TB of iCloud Storage. I understand that original full resolution Photos and Videos are in iCloud, but I also want to have a Local Backup (using an external 2TB disk) using Time Machine.

But according to Apple, my Time Machine Backup IS NOT a Backup of my Original Full Resolution Photos and Videos.

  1. Is there any way to solve this? 2) Or any other alternative to have a Local Backup? 3) Or any program to automatically backup directly from iCloud?

Thank you!.

identify this – What are the mountains visible in these photos?

the first, second and 4th image show a large, unforested area with a distinctly differently colored patch. this appears to match the Manpur region on Nasa satellite maps of Nepal (the yellow area circled below), although it also could match the kathmandu region (yellow dots):

enter image description here

Mount Everest lies in the orange circle. I’ve tried to match that area to the image:

enter image description here

My best guess is that Mount Everest lies in the orange circle. this seems to match the general topography of the Mount Everest area: really high mountains surrounding a valley where the mountains taper off slowly. In addition, on the second image, you can almost see what looks like the Annapurna pass between Nepal and Tibet straight ahead from the Manpur region, the area where the mountains don’t appear to have snow.

This is only a rough estimate, but to the extent of my knowledge of the region, I think it’s the most likely candidate. If the area with the differently colored patch is actually the Kathmandu capital region, the orange dotted mountains are a more likely candidate for Mount Everest. I do not know enough about Nepal to be sure of either claim.

exposure – Why are Canon 700D photos under exposed when compared with the preview?

You probably use a small aperture. When autofocus does its work, it usually does it with wide open aperture. That’s why you get a brighter image for a small time. It says nothing about the brightness of the final image. This may be different when using phased-based autofocus and contrast-based autofocus, but this depends on what the camera does.

Some cameras might have an option for a “framing” vs “preview” display either in live view or when using a through-the-lens optical viewfinder: in that case “framing” gives full brightness but less depth of field than the actual photograph may have, while “preview” corresponds in brightness and depth of field to the final result.

Looking in the manual, it would appear that you have a depth of field preview button to the upper right of the lens mount. Pressing that should reduce the brightness to the actual brightness that is going to end up in the photograph, at least when using the optical viewfinder.

android 11 – Unable to share photos

I just “upgraded” my Pixel3a to 11. Now I can’t share photos from my piktures (yes, that is how it’s spelled) photo management app via Messages or Gmail. Tapping the share button presents only two options: ‘Nearby share’ and ‘bluetooth’. In Android 10, I was greeted with many apps.

I was able to briefly get Messages and Gmail to show up in the list by going to those apps and attaching photos from there. Alas, those apps are no longer visible from piktures. The problem with attaching photos from those apps is that they show the newest photos first. While that is often the right answer, sometimes I want to share an older photo and it is very tedious to scroll and scroll in the hopes of finding it.

As a side note, I can no longer delete photos from piktures either.

Is there a setting somewhere that allows me to share from piktures?
