A beautiful late spring evening on the North Wales coast, overlooking the Conwy estuary from the roadbridge next to the iconic Conway castle.
The play of light across the lightly clouded sky around sunset was just wonderful, and with flat calm conditions over the estuary the reflections made the water at high tide look like a sheet of beaten copper.
A great opportunity to shoot a time lapse sequence then, with those slowly moving clouds wafting by overhead and the moored yachts gently moving from side to side in the turgid flow.
This image is one of hundreds that I captured that evening in order to create my Conway Sunset Timelapse #4 video, and shows the scene just after sunset, with the clouds, light and reflections at their most dramatic.
