Lanzarote Dusk Timelapse #1

The story behind this video

I was hoping to do some milky way time lapse photography during the week long holiday my wife Liz and I spent on Lanzarote on the Canary Islands in early February 2018.

But it transpired that our visit coincided with a full moon and quite chilly, breezy and cloudy weather conditions - not ideal cirumstances for star photography.

So instead I decided to concentrate my low light time lapse efforts into capturing the transition from day to night at various places along the brightly lit southern coast of the island, making use of the artifical lighting that would have proved an anathema to capturing decent night skies.

This particular time lapse features dusk fading into night along the promenade at the seaside town of Puerto del Carmen, which was just a short walk from our resort.

Very handy, seeing as it started to rain just after I'd finished this shoot!
