The story behind this image

The winter sun has just vanished below the horizon off the North Wales coast as I stand on the west Shore beach at Llandudno watching as the clouds catch the last of the warm orange light.

Low tide has left a huge stretch of wet sand and tidal runoff that's glowing with reflected light from the skies above.

Just a lovely composition of light, shadow and colour that's gone a few moments later, but remembered in the click of my camera's shutter.
