The story behind this image

When you take the highly changeable welsh weather into account, then you're never short of photographic opportunities.

Such as this wonderful array of sunrays bursting out from behind a dark cumulus cloud.

Photographed as I was halfway through parking our car at Porth Trwyn on Anglesey, this view only lasted a few seconds at most.

So it was a good job I had my camera prepped and ready to go on the back seat of the car or I would have missed this event while faffing about swapping lens and so on.

I never was a Boy Scout, but I fully appreciate their 'Be Prepared' motto!
