Lanzarote Sunset Timelapse #1

The story behind this video

On the first evening of our week long stay on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands my wife Liz and I ventured out to see how things looked around Puerto del Carmen, which is where we were staying.

Heading towards the old harbour we came across this little bay just as the sun was beginning to set, so not wanting to miss the opportunity of getting my first Lanzarote timelapse in the bag, we spent forty five minutes sitting on the sea wall while my camera clicked away shooting the stills required for this video.

In the end the sunset proved quite gentle, falling behind some clouds on the horizon of the Atlantic ocean while fishermen and sightseers wandered about on the beach and jetty below.

Just a nice scene to start the holiday's photography off with.
