The story behind this image

A beautiful summer's day and where else would you want to be other than in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, enjoying the view up Llyn Padarn at the famous 'Lone Tree' as cumulus clouds stream by overhead, painting the landscape below in a patchwork of light and shadow.

This is one of the many iconic Snowdonia views, and I certainly wasn't going to waste the opportunity of great scenery and great light, so it was out with the camera and tripod for twenty minutes' worth of shooting the hundreds of still images needed to create my Llyn Padarn Timelapse #13 video.

This is just one of those hundreds of captures, and shows the fantastic conditions that my wife Liz and I enjoyed on our day out in Snowdonia.
