A beautiful, sunny spring day in North Wales, with light, fluffy cumulus clouds drifting by overhead across a vivid blue sky.
Under normal circumstances my wife Liz and I would take the opportunity to drive off to one of the many beauty spots that adorn this wonderful part of the world on a day like this, but in the spring of 2020, with the UK in coronavirus lockdown, that wasn't possible.
So instead I contented myself with shooting the hundreds of frames needed for this time lapse video from my back yard in Buckley, Flintshire, carefully framing the composition to avoid our washing line, fence panels and our neighbour's roofline!
Mind you, the trees in their spring foliage were a glorious sight, glowing in the clean air and sunlight.
