The story behind this video

Surely one of the most beautiful places on earth to watch a sunset from is the west coast of the Isle of Anglsey, just off the North Wales coast.

With secluded rocky coves and unspoilt beaches there's a myriad of places to go, but one of my favourites is Church Bay.(Porth Swtan in welsh.)

With a beach backed by golden stone cliffs, and strewn with boulders and rockpools at low tide it is a vertiable wonderland, with sights, sounds and smells all combining to almost overwhelm the senses.

My wife Liz and I come here often to recharge, and inevitably I get to spend a couple of hours on the beach filming the combination of tide and sunset.

This particular occasion in early August 2019 gave us a lovely, colourful sunset on a rising tide, and I made the most of the opportunity, filmimg this time lapse video in two stages, retreating up the beach as the sea started washing over my hiking boots!
