The story behind this video

During our two week stay in an apartment overlooking Lake Como in northern Italy I took advantage of the spectacular view from our balcony to shoot timelapse sequences at all times of the day and night, capturing the varied weather and lighting conditions that occured during our stay.

Facing west, our balcony gave an ideal vanatage point to watch and film sunsets over the mountains behind the far side of the lake, with this sequence being one of the more dramatic as the the slide own the side of the mountain, lighting up the clouds overhead in a wonderful display of light and colour until twilight finally claimed the day.
