Dusk over Colwyn Bay

The story behind this video

A gentle winter's evening on the North Wales coast, and my wife Liz and I were heading home along the A55 following a day's exploring around Snowdonia.

As dusk was falling we decided to drop down to Rhos-on-Sea for a coffee and to watch the lights around Colwyn Bay coming on as the natural daylight faded away.

It was lovely sitting watching the change from day to night, far too nice to allow the moment to pass without shooting a few hundred frames to make this time lapse of the scene.

It's nice to have a watchable memory of the evening, and to be able to share the beauty and peace we enjoyed sitting on the promenade on this part of the coast.
