The story behind this image

I've lost count of how many still photos and videos I've shot from the West Shore at Llandudno on the North Wales coast.

You would think by now that I've exhausted all possible opportunities for fresh inspiration here, but that would be far from the truth.

This stretch of the coast is just so dynamic, with tide, light and weather constantly changing so you never see the same view twice!

So I had no qualms at all about pointing my camera to the southwest over the beach and sea to capture an image of this dramatic wave cloud over the headlands of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfecan as it caught the warm light of the setting sun far to the northwest.

In fact, I was so enamoured with this cloud that I went on to shoot several hundred further frames, in order to make my Llandudno Timelapse #30 video.

Just another day in the office in beautiful North Wales!
