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.
