A gap in the showers had my wife Liz and I driving a short way to Greenfield on the North Wales coast for a spot of exercise and fresh air at the beginning of November 2020.
A walk along the industrial heritage trail ended up with a very welcome cup of coffee, plus a bacon and saugage bap, as we sat down by the ancient ruins of Basingwerk Abbey.
With broken clouds scudding by overhead it was too good an opportunity to miss, so out came the camera and tripod for a quarter hour or so time lapse photography.
Taking a photo every two seconds meant that every minute spent shooting yielded just one second of video, so my quarter of an hour tea break session gave me this 15 second time lapse showing a lovely play of light over the ancient stonework of the ruined abbey.
Then it was time to pack away and head back to our parked car, just in time to avoid the next heavy shower!
