attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String A digital camera mounted inside the bell tower of the Mission of Sts. Peter and Paul church was used to photograph Waimea Bay on the North Shore of the island of Oahu in the State of Hawaii. The oblique camera view presented here captures the entire breadth of the bay at a distance offshore of the beach park (not visible) looking outwards over Kamehameha Highway towards Kaena Point in the southwest. It operated for over 4.5 years between February 5, 2009 and October 14, 2013. Capturing hourly snapshots at a set vantage point during the local daytime hours of 6:00 AM or 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, these images are useful for tracking ocean wave and water dynamics over time. The camera was mounted in the bell tower windows for a total height of 20 meters above ground level or 31 meters above mean sea level. See also beachcam_003 for an alternate camera view from the same location pointing further inshore of Waimea Bay along the shoreline of the beach park.
