The story behind this image

A trip to the North Wales coast isn't complete without some time spent admiring the clusters of offshore wind turbines that make up the Gwynt-y-Môr wind farm.

Love them or hate them (and I love them!) you can't ingore these monster windmills stretched out across Colwyn Bay on the horizon of the Irish Sea.

Catch them in the right light and they make for great photographic, time lapse or video subjects.

Which is what I did on this sunny winter's day while out for a walk along the promenade at Prestatyn.
