The story behind this image

A beautiful summer's evening in late July and where else would I want to be other than on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, on the North Wales coast, watching and photographing at the tip of the other-worldly Llanddwyn Island.

Right at the end of Llanddwyn Island lies the much photographed watchtower, perched on a volcanic outcropping looking out over the Irish Sea with a small beach just to the side.

I started my evening's shoot on that beach where I plonked my tripod down and settled in to take the hundreds of still images that I needed to create my Llanddwyn Timelapse #1 video that lasted through sunset and on into dusk.

Once the sun had set I repositioned myself to take another series of time lapse images, of which this is one, featuring the increasing amount of textured clouds scudding by overhead.

It was almost fully dark by the time I'd finished, and it was a long walk back along Newborough beach by torchlight to the car park, hidden amongst the dunes.
