Barmouth Sunset Timelapse #3

The story behind this video

A long weekend spent exploring the welsh coast around Barmouth and the Mawddach estuary in late April 2021 was just the post-covid lockdown tonic my wife Liz and I needed.

Add in a few days of glorious sunny weather and out joy was complete.

With clear skies at the horizon I took the opportunity to photograph and film the dramatic sunsets over the hills and mountains of the Llyn Peninsula, visible on the horizon over Cardigan Bay from the promenade at Barmouth.

I shot this time lapse sequence on our second evening at Barmouth, with drifting clouds catching the light in a most beguiling fashion, which continued long after the sun had actually set and dusk had fallen.
