The story behind this video

My wife Liz and I had spent a lovely day in early Autumn 2020 exploring some of our well loved beauty spots in and around the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park, basking in the warm sunshine.

Loth just to go home by the quickest route, we decided to cut through the mountains to the coast at Dinas Dinlle to have a look at the sunset, dusk and moonset out over the Irish Sea.

Of course I couldn't let the opportunity go by without capturing hundreds of still images in order to create a series of time lapse videos of the wonderful light and colours we witnessed, which you can watch by following these links:

But that wasn't the end of our time at Dinas Dinlle, as we stayed on into the night, marvelling at the Milky Way, plus the planets Jupiter and saturn, tracking through the wonderfully dark skies above the 'Seven Sisters' mountain range along the Llyn Peninsula to our south.

And naturally I was still out on the promenade, filming away until it was finally time to go home, tired but happy at having witnessed such beauty in God's creation.
