The HenleyCam is up and running again with new cameras, better quality and larger images. Direct access to the cameras is at the link below. A Desktop App will be provided soon. The iPhone App is available from the iStore (just search for HenleyCam):

Yip, the cameras operate from 6am to 6pm in winter and will operate from 5am to 7pm in summer. No need to have them working in the dark hours and it saves on bandwidth. With the previous setup it just used to upload 24/7 with no control.

Whilst it's great to have the HenleyCam back, the better quality and bigger images really brings home the reality of just how dirty and brown looking Jo'burg is in winter. Roll on summer and the first rains to bring a flush of green.

I used to do a "gold run" from Welkom to Rand every day and I remember how bad the soup was. I sometimes couldn't even see the runway until really close, all the nitrogen oxides and smoke in the air :sad:

The air is horrible and all the lawn darts must be flying.

Well at least there is a bit of greenery in the form of the pot plant on the right hand side of the camera view.

Hmm, now I can imagine all sorts of things, put up a little greenhouse tea garden...

You know I used to fly charters from that hangar in the late 80s, we ran around so much that we never had time to appreciate a green blade of grass.
