The story behind this video

At the end of a lovely summer's day on the North Wales coast, my wife Liz and I often enjoy a stroll along the promenade at Deganwy, looking out over the mouth of the estuary of the river Conwy as it empties into the North Sea.

This is a great place to watch the sunset from as well, and there's usually some cloud action along the horizon to provide extra interest when filming a time lapse sequence.

Such was the case on this particular evening, with the sun playing hide and seek behind the clouds on its way down to the western horizon.

By the way, I'm still waiting hopefully to see this mystical 'green flash' that's supposed to occur rarely just as the sun disappears.

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to keep on enjoying sunsets for a while yet!
