The story behind this image

A high vantage point on the flanks of the Great Orme at Llandudno West Shore gave me this dramatic view out over the North Wales coast as the winter sun set over the Irish Sea, just clipping the headland at Penmaenmawr to the southwest.

The cloudscape was so lovely that I shot hundreds of frames during the sunset, in order to make my Llandudno Sunset Timelapse #15 video.

This is just one of those frames, selected to show the sun just setting and the high clouds fanning out across the twilight skies.

Just a wonderful moment in time that was soon gone, but remembered in this image.
