Deganwy Sunset Timelapse #6

The story behind this video

This was my second attempt in two days to shoot a time lapse video of a beautiful sunset over the waters of the Conwy estuary on the North Wales coast.

My first attempt ended in an epic fail, due to no fault other than my own, and you can read all about it and watch the failed version of the video at this link.

But I'm glad to say that this second version was much more sucessful, me having learnt from my mistakes from the previous evening's shoot.

I was very blessed in that conditions over the two days were very similar - clear skies, no wind and a low tide exposing the imposing wooden tower that I used in silhouette as a foreground feature.

The next day, normal North Wales weather re-asserted itself with a good breeze and a bank of cloud on the horizon, so I'm really glad I was able to get a second bite at this particular cherry!
