The story behind this image

A beautiful and dramatic twilight sky over the Atlantic ocean as seen from the rugged coastline of North Cornwall at Crackinton Haven.

My wife Liz and I made a few visits to this secluded beach during our two week stay in the area, primarily to catch the stunning sunset views out over the waters to the northwest.

And, of course, for me to take a few photos.

When I say 'a few' I mean hundreds, required to create a series of time lapse videos featuring these awe inspiring views and the wonderful play of light and colour across the heavens.

The image featured here is one of those that I captured in order to create my Crackington Haven Timelapse #3 video, and was selected from towards the end of the shoot with the rich twilight glow still lighting the sky along the western horizon.

Just an amazing evening, watching and photographing one of God's glorious lightshows!
