The story behind this image

Are you fed up with endless sunshine and boring blue skies?

Then come to the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, where titanic atmospheric forces battle over mountain peaks and you can experience all four seasons in the space of half an hour.

Of course, 'interesting' weather like this isn't everyones' cup of tea, but for an outdoor photographer like me it's meat and drink.

Which is why I spend a lot of my leisure time touring the area with my wife Liz, checking out the beautiful and dramatic scenery and photographing the ever changing weather.

This image, of sunbeams through storm clouds over the summit of Snowdon and surrounding peaks, is typical Snowdonia weather, and this frame is just one of hundreds I shot on that particular afternoon to make my Snowdon Time Lapse #9 video.
