The story behind this image

During winter the weather along the North Wales coast can get decidely frisky, with weather fronts sweeping over from the west bringing strong winds and lively cloudscapes.

Ideal conditions for a spot of photography then, and I took full advantage of the weather on this blustery day in December 2018 to shoot the hundreds of frames necessary to make my Llandudno Time Lapse #33 video, showing storm clouds sweeping over the Great Orme headland at the western end of Llandudno Bay.

To shoot the images without the tripod twitching around in the wind I had to take shelter behind a convenient wall, such were the conditions on the day.

This image is one of those hundereds taken for the time lapse, showing off those magnificent clouds.
