The story behind this image

Early July 2017 and my wife Liz and I had spent the day exploring the beauties of the Snowdonia National Park.

As usual, we headed home along the A55 coast road eastwards from Bangor, with a stop at Conway to pick up a takeaway coffee and then on to the West Shore at Llandudno to see how the sunset was developing.

Llandudno West Shore, as the name suggests, is west facing and therefore a great place to catch a coastal sunset.

With acres of wet sand at low tide, and the foothills of Snowdonia lining the coastal strip in the distance, the views from here are just beautiful when the light is right.

This image is one frame taken from hundreds I shot that evening to create my Llandudno Timelapse #30 video, capturing even more of the lovely sunset for you to enjoy.
