The story behind this video

Driving back to our holiday cottage near Bude, after having spent the day exploring the beauties of the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall, my wife Liz and I noticed this lovely sunset developing over the ocean.

Finding somewhare safe to park on the narrow country roads to photograph the event proved challenging, but eventually I found a convenient layby that gave us this view out over the sea.

By now the sun was touching the horizon, so with no time to lose I quickly set up my camera and tripod, using my longest zoom lens to get as close to the action as possible.

I ended up by shooting just a couple of minutes of video as the sun sank rapidly down past the far horizon, catching the best and most colourful part of the sunset.

The real time video was a bit tedious to watch, so in order to make things a bit snappier I speeded the action up by six times for this final edit.
